Massachusetts: 3 Pardons ... Maybe

MassLive.com reports Gov. Deval Patrick is "considering" three men for pardons. In Massachusetts, the Governor's Council votes on pardons and commutations recommendations, but the last time that a governor actually granted a pardon was 2002. Now, there are recommendations for True-See Allah (armed assault with attempt to murder, 1989), Jeffrey Snyder (drug offenses, 1995) and Edem Amet (drug offenses, 1994 and 1995).

It is reported that Gov. Patrick will "definitely" pardon some people "before he leaves office." See story here.
