2 NE AR men intended to be pardoned by Gov. Beebe

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Governor Mike Beebe intends to grant seven pardons to people around the state.  Two of those people were convicted of charges in Northeast Arkansas.

According to a news release from the governor on Wednesday, David Byron Powell of Edgemont and Darrell Kading of Russell are among seven to receive pardons.

The release states Powell was convicted of possessing meth, Diazepam and drug paraphernalia in Craighead County in 1991. In a separate case, Kading was convicted in White County in 1994 for criminal use of a prohibited weapon.

Gov. Beebe's release states those up for a pardon:

"…have completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole-and-probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentences. There is a 30-day waiting period to receive public feedback on the commutation and pardons before final action is taken."

It went on to state there are no law enforcement objections to either of the men's pardon applications.

In addition to the pardons, Beebe also intends to grant a commutation of sentence to another man on drug charges from Lincoln County.
