Arkansas Governor Announces Intent to Grant Executive Clemency

LITTLE ROCK, AR (STL.News) Governor Asa Hutchinson today announced his intent to grant 14 pardons, three restoration of firearm rights only, and four commutations.  An additional 62 clemency requests were denied and three had no action taken upon them.  These include requests from both inmates and non-inmates.

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 intends to grant pardons to the following people:

Leonard Carrillo (Redfield): Theft of Property (C Felony) and Breaking or Entering (D Felony) (CR-95-168-2).

This notice is issued based on the date of conviction (1995 – Jefferson County), the fact that all terms of the applicant’s sentence have been completed and there have been no further criminal-law violations.  There are no law enforcement objections to the application.

Jake W. Gibson (West Fork): Breaking or Entering (D Felony) and Theft of Property (C Felony) (CR 92-784).

This notice is issued based on the date of conviction (1993 – Washington County), the fact that all terms of the applicant’s sentence have been completed and there have been no further criminal-law violations.
