Conway man anticipates Governor's pardon

Local man sees the light of day after a long road of struggle. William M. Lewis of Conway was convicted in 1995 on counts of Possession of Methamphetamine and Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession of Methamphetamine with Intent to Deliver.

Today, Governor Mike Beebe announced his intent to pardon Lewis alongside ten other men and women. Those who have applied for the pardon had to fulfill strict requirements including completing all jail time, fulfilling all parole-and-probationary requirements as well as pay all fines related to the sentence. Before the pardon is made official there is a 30-day waiting period for public feedback on the pardon to be returned then final action can occur.
