Outgoing president Bush announces list of 14 pardons

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

The White House announced last night that President Bush would grant 14 pardons and commute 2 sentences before leaving office in January. The pardons did not include any of the high-profile defendants who have previously petitioned the Bush administration for help.
"These were garden variety crimes for the most part — drug distribution, a couple of unauthorized uses of fertilizers."
