LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson intends to pardon two men convicted of drug offensives and allow a man convicted of breaking or entering to own firearms.

The governor’ office announced Friday that he denied 148 clemency requests and didn’t take action on 28 others. There is a 30-day waiting period to receive public feedback before final action is taken.

The three men have completed all jail time, parole and probationary requirements related to their sentences. There are no law-enforcement objections for them.

John Herron of Hot Springs was convicted in 2002 of attempt to manufacture methamphetamine and other charges. Stephen Wiman of Russellville was convicted in 1998 of charges including manufacturing a controlled substance.

Todd Smith of Jonesboro was convicted in 1999 of breaking or entering.
