Governor Brown Grants 65 Easter Pardons

SACRAMENTO (KTLA) — Gov. Jerry Brown granted 65 pardons on the day before Easter.

The governor announced on Saturday that the pardoned individuals have completed their sentences and have been released from custody for more than a decade without committing another crime.

Most of the pardons were for drug or property crimes, though there is one murderer and two people convicted in manslaughter cases.

Anyone convicted of a crime in California can apply to the governor for a pardon.
