It’s a historic day for Oklahoma and the country, as more than 400 inmates will be released from prison Monday.
This is believed to be the country's largest-ever day of commutations -- all of this is part of the state's criminal justice reform.

During a meeting Friday, the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board granted commutation to a total of 527 inmates, and 462 inmates are scheduled for release on Monday.
The inmates set to leave are doing time for nonviolent crimes, including drug possession and lower-level property crime.
This move is estimated to save Oklahoma taxpayers nearly $12 million.
Gov. Kevin Stitt will join state and community partners to greet an estimated 70 women whose sentences have been commuted at the Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Facility, an all-women’s prison in Taft.
