Florida: Former Gator, Steeler, Pardoned

The Associated Press reports that former University of Florida football team captain who served two years in federal prison on a drug conviction has had his rights restored by the Florida Board of Executive Clemency . William Owen Bartuff says his involvement in a drug conspiracy was "minimal" but he now needs a state licence to practice as a chiropractor. The panel voted 4-0 in favor of clemency. See story here.

I see Florida has been working real hard on their back log of pardon apps.(NOT!) Filed for pardon in Nov 2007 and still no word on when I will be considered. I guess I should of been the captain of a football team in order to be considered.2010 will be 20 years conviction free.
