LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Gov. Mike Beebe has announced his intent to grant pardons to 25 people who were convicted of various crimes.

Beebe’s office said Wednesday that each of the 25 have completed all jail time, fulfilled all parole-and-probationary requirements and paid all fines related to their sentences.

The 25 included Anna Lee Clark of Searcy who was convicted in Pulaski County in 2010 of negligent homicide and Michael Jackson of Searcy who was convicted in Faulkner County in 2008 of internet stalking of a child. The governor’s office says law enforcement or prosecutors have objected to both pardon requests.

There is a 30-day waiting period for public comment on the pardons before final action is taken.
