The Republic reports Gov. Beebe pardon 11 people. Per normal, each has "completed their jail time, met parole and probationary requirements and paid their fines." Among the convictions pardoned are battery, domestic battery, bad check writing, and eight convictions related to drug charges (possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver). Members of the public have 30 days to comment before final action is taken. See story here.
