Florida: Harry Davis Pardoned

Harry Davis recently stood before a three member panel and pleased for clemency. Davis told the panel that he needed a pardon in order to pass background checks to do volunteer work with children and to obtain a massage therapist license.

The 56-year-old Davis was a former basketball with Florida State 1974-8) and a second-round draft choice of the Cleveland Cavaliers (1978-9). But, in 1987 he was tagged with a cocaine trafficking conviction while vacationing in West Palm Beach. Davis then served a one-year sentence in the Palm Beach County stockade.

Now Gov. Rick Scott and the three-member Florida Cabinet have unanimously granted Davis a conditional pardon. If he is arrested again on drug charges, the pardon will be voided. It is reported that Davis will also try to get the conviction expunged.

PardonPower says "congratulations" and best of luck to Harry Davis! Go 'Noles! See more on this story here.
