Commutation is an annoying reality in countries where the judiciary system works with the corrupt politician.

Commutation:

The first thing I thought of was the internals of DC motors.

The second thing I thought of was the process of going to and from one's job by whatever means such as public transit, bicycle, etc.

Didn't think of commuting a prison sentence as fast as I thought of the other two.

On Google, my first answer is number Google's number two answer and your answer was #1. It is a word with multiple definitions.
