Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.I am sorry to hear about your son's difficult situation.Unfortunately, if your son was sentenced to serve his prison sentences consecutively, while a petition to governor for clemency can be filed, generally very few sentences are commuted (reduced) by the governor, so it is not very likely that someone in your son's current situation would have a great chance of having his original consecutive sentences reduced.
Also, your son or his attorney can file a Petition to Modify Sentence or for Post-Conviction Relief with the same court that has sentenced him, but the chances of getting either petition granted are very slim, as the courts do not generally reduce or lighten sentence, unless there is some compelling legal reason to do so.
I am sorry to give you this tough news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide each and every JustAnswer.com customer with correct answer, even when my answer is not favorable to the customer.I wish you the best of luck!
