Gov. Mike Beebe last week announced his intent to grant eight pardons. An additional 49 clemency requests were denied and 20 had no action taken upon them. These include requests from both inmates and non-inmates.
The eight 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 pardons before final action is taken.
Beebe intends to grant pardons to the following people:
Daniel Smith (Bee Branch): Theft of Property - This notice is issued based on the date of conviction (2007 - Cleburne 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.
Susan Elvins (Fayetteville): Possession of Cocaine
DeWayne Hicks (Fort Smith): Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver, Criminal Mischief, Battery
Mark A. Johnson (Fayetteville): Burglary, Theft of Property, Criminal Mischief
Charlene Maze (Fort Smith): Theft of Property, Conspiracy to Possess Cocaine with Intent to Deliver
