As President Barack Obama prepares to leave the White House, there are thousands of calls from federal inmates across the United States to have their sentences shortened or commuted.
So far Obama has done it for nearly 800 prisoners.
One inmate who is waiting to hear any word from the out-going president is Leonard Peltier.
He was a member of the American Indian Movement – an organization whose members were convicted of killing of Annie Mae Aquash, a Mi’kmaq activist murdered 41 years ago.
While Peltier wasn’t involved in Aquash’s death, her daughter explains why she doesn’t want any kind of clemency for him.
