Gov. Mike Beebe - a governor who grants pardons on a regular basis, not simply at the end of the term, or when it is Christmastime - has announced his intent to grant seven pardons. Per usual, "each of the seven have completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole-and-probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentences." Among the offenses addressed were drug-related crimes, theft, forgery and "hot check violations." See story here.
