Illinois: Five Pardons

Gov. Bruce Rauner has granted 5 petitions for clemency and denied 197 others. The grants involved "attempted burglary, theft and drug charges." Per usual, "each [recipient] has undergone a background check." Rauner says he has "eliminated a backlog of thousands of clemency requests inherited under previous governors" - largely by rejecting them. See story here.
