Conan Pope was 16 years old when he shot and killed his own father. That was in 2000. He has since requested a pardon in order to be able to own firearms and join the military. Justice Michael Cherry, who handled the case, supported the application. A District Attorney opposed it. On the other hand, the State board voted to pardon 60-year old Christopher Larsen, who was convicted of first degree murder 35 years ago. See full story here.
