By Veronica Stracqualursi and Natasha Chen, CNN, December 19, 2019:
Bevin pardoned and commuted the sentence of Patrick Baker, who convicted of reckless homicide in 2017.
The Courier-Journal reported that Baker’s family had held a fundraiser and donated to Bevin’s gubernatorial campaigns. Baker served two years of a 19-year sentence, while his co-defendants are still in prison, the newspaper reported.
From that The Courier-Journal article:
The Friday order was one of 428 pardons and commutations Bevin issued since his narrow loss in November to Democrat Andy Beshear, who was sworn into office Tuesday.
The beneficiaries include one offender convicted of raping a child, another who hired a hitman to kill his business partner and a third who killed his parents.
