Beebe announces intent to grant pardons


LITTLE ROCK — Gov. Mike Beebe on Monday announced his intention to grant five pardons.

All five applicants have completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole and probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentenced, the governor’s office said.

The applicants intended for pardon include:

—David Lee Waits, Fort Smith, who was convicted of assault on family member and resisting arrest.

—William J. Donahue, Little Rock, theft of property.

—Jason B. Holland, Little Rock, possession of marijuana, instruments of crime, drug paraphernalia, and methadone; possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.

—Robert P. Lomax, Osceola, burglary, grand larceny.

—Herman T. Warren, Heber Springs, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

The governor’s office said all terms of the applicants’ sentences have been completed, there have been no further criminal law violation and no law enforcement agency objected to the applications.

State law sets a 30-day waiting period to receive public feedback on the commutation and pardons before final action is taken.
