Gov. Cuomo granted clemency to 29 convicts Monday — including four serving lengthy sentences for murder.
Twenty-two of the inmates won pardons, including several immigrants convicted of drug crimes who were facing possible deportation.
Nine others had their sentences commuted, four for murder and three for armed robbery.
“These actions will help keep immigrant families together and take a critical step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York,” the governor said in a statement.
