Any idea of how the quantity of pardons for Barbour compares to prior governors?
Scott, from today's Clarion-Ledger:Former Gov. Ronnie Musgrove used that power once during his term, pardoning an inmate serving time for the possession of marijuana. He did, though, reward 26 inmates with either suspension of sentences, commutation of sentences or restoration of civil rights, with seven of those convicted of either murder or manslaughter.-and-Former Gov. Kirk Fordice, who is now deceased, pardoned one inmate convicted of involuntary manslaughter and two of murder, and former Gov. Ray Mabus pardoned one convicted of murder.
