KOMO News is reporting on the clemency bid of Mnny Uch, a Cambodian refugee and former gang member who has turned "civic leader." After serving time for driving a getaway car during a robbery, Uch began counselling young people to stay out of trouble. The state Clemency and Pardons Board has unanimously recommended a pardon, something needed in order for Uch to avoid being deported. Gov. Chris Gregoire will now decide Uch's fate. See story here.
