Biden Pardons Six More
President Biden gave full pardons to six individuals at the end of 2022, the majority of which were convicted of drug- and alcohol-related crimes decades earlier.
Those granted clemency had served sentences and “demonstrated a commitment to improving their communities and the lives of those around them,” a White House official said in a statement. “These include individuals who honorably served in the U.S. military, volunteer in their communities, and survived domestic abuse.”
The decision comes following an executive order in October that pardoned thousands convicted of simple marijuana possession under federal law and D.C. statute. In April, Biden also granted clemency to three people and granted 75 commutations.
On Dec. 30, 2022, President Biden granted full pardons to Gary Parks Davis (Yuma, Arizona); Edward Lincoln De Coito III (Dublin, California); Vincente Ray Flores (Winters, California); Beverly Ann Ibn-Tamas (Columbus, Ohio); Charlie Byrnes Jackson (Swansea, South Carolina); and John Dix Nock III (St. Augustine, Florida).
