Governor to issue pardons

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Governor Mike Beebe today announced his intent to grant six pardons. An additional 25 clemency requests were denied and 21 had no action taken upon them. These include requests from both inmates and non-inmates.

The six applicants intended for pardons have completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole-and-probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentences. There is a 30-day waiting period to receive public feedback on the commutation and pardons before final action is taken.
