LITTLE ROCK – Governor Asa Hutchinson Friday announced his intent to grant 20 pardons, including one involving a Logan County case.
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.
The Governor is issuing a pardon to Alan W. Hopkins of Ozark for Theft of Property (C Felony) (CR 97-65); and Theft of Property (Probation Revocation) (C Felony) (CR 97-65).
This notice is issued based on the dates of convictions — 1997 and 2000 in Logan County — the fact that all terms of the applicant’s sentence have been completed and there have been no further felony criminal-law violations.
The Prosecuting Attorney has raised objections to applicant’s request.
