Gov. Mike Beebe Thursday announced his intent to grant 25 pardons. 13 clemency additional requests were denied and 34 remained pending. The 25 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 pardons before final action is taken. See story here.
