South Dakotan among those receiving Bush pardon

Washington, D.C. (AP) 4-08

President Bush pardoned 15 people and commuted the prison sentence of another.

Bush has been stingy about handing out such reprieves. With about nine months left in his administration, he has granted 157 pardons. That’s less than half as many as Presidents Clinton or Reagan issued during their time in office. Both were two-term presidents.

Most of those on Bush’s most recent pardon list were convicted of white-collar or drug offenses.

The pardon list included Lonnie Edward Two Eagle Sr. of Parmelee, S.D., who was sentenced to two years probation in 1976 for misdemeanor simple assault on a reservation.
