Speaking of Pardons and Outlaw Types ...

Presidents have granted clemency to the likes of:

Ed Reed (1883) - horse thief, son of Belle Starr, "the Outlaw Queen," or "the Female Jesse James" and the outlaw James Reed (of the James-Younger Gang)

Bluford Duck (1895) - murderer who took the time to pose for a nice portrait just after he was sentenced to hang by Isaac Parker

David Anderson (1896) - aka "Billy Wilson" and "Buffalo Bill," joined Billy the Kid's gang, arrested by Pat Garrett, escaped from prison and went all respectable

Henry Starr (1903) - who started robbing banks on horseback and graduated to the automobile.

Al Jennings (1907) - from a gang to politics and the movies
