Governor to Pardon Four Men

Each has completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole-and-probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentences.
LITTLE ROCK, AR (News release) - Governor Mike Beebe today announced his intent to grant four pardons. An additional 25 clemency requests were denied and 14 had no action taken upon them. These include requests from both inmates and non-inmates. 

The four 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. 

Governor Beebe intends to grant pardons to the following people:

Bobby J. Bentley (Hot Springs): Theft, Theft by Receiving, Hot Check
