LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

Two Region 8 men are on a list of people Governor Asa Hutchinson plans on pardoning.

According to a news release from the governor’s office, Alfred Lee Pete Jiles of Tuckerman and Kenneth Boyd Proctor of Wynne have been chosen for a governor’s pardon.

Jiles was convicted of felony theft of property and misdemeanor theft of property charges. He was convicted in Jackson County in 2004 and Craighead County in 2006.

Proctor was convicted on two counts of felony arson and one count of felony theft of property. He was convicted in Cross County in 1989.

Everyone who is up for a pardon has completed their sentences and have had no other criminal-law violations. There are also no objections to their pardons by law enforcement.

There is a 30-day waiting period to get feedback from the public before final action is taken.
