NEWARK — Three New Jerseyans are among more than 200 people who have had their sentences commuted by President Barack Obama.

All three were serving at least 20 years for crack cocaine distribution offenses. The White House announced Wednesday their sentences will be commuted to expire on Dec. 1.

Morris Dabbs of Trenton was sentenced in 2000 in North Carolina to 30 years conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, a sentence that was later reduced to 20 years.

Sayreville resident Albert Josey Jr. was sentenced in 2007 to about 22 years in prison in Virginia for a similar offense.

Richard Warrick of Englewood was sentenced in Alabama to 30 years in 1996.

President Obama made grants of commutation to 214 people on Wednesday.
