Two area residents among Governor’s pardons


   

Two people from Fulton County are among 12 Governor Asa Hutchinson announced Friday he intended to pardon.

Brenda Allen Dean of Fulton County is among the dozen pardons to be granted. Dean's pardon is for four felony counts of burglary and four counts of misdemeanor theft under $100.

The pardon notice was issued based on the date of convictions in 1980 in Hempstead County, all terms of the applicant’s sentence having been completed and there being no further criminal law violations. The sheriff has raised objections to the applicant’s request.

The second area pardon is for James C. Dean, Jr. of Fulton County. James Dean, Jr.'s pardon is for convictions of felony burglary and theft of property.

The pardon notice was issued based on the date of convictions in 1984 in Hempstead County, all terms of the applicant’s sentence having been completed and there being no further criminal law violations. The sheriff has raised objections to the applicant’s request.

Also on the list of pardons was Johnathon D. Griffin of Roland who was convicted of a felony hot check violation in Marion County in 2006.

This notice was issued based on the date of conviction, all terms of the applicant’s sentence having been completed and there being no further criminal law violations. There are no law enforcement objections to the application.

The applicants intended for pardons have completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole and probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentences. There is a 30-day waiting period to receive public feedback on the notices before final action is taken.

Governor Hutchinson also announced he intends to grant the restoration of firearm rights only to an Izard County man, Rodney G. Vaile of Oxford, for conviction of possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

The notice was issued based on the date of conviction in 2005 in Izard County, all terms of the applicant’s sentence having been completed and there being no further criminal law violations. Izard County Sheriff Jack Yancey has signed the recommendation of the chief law enforcement officer as required by law. There are no law enforcement objections to the application.
