List of people pardoned by George W. Bush

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A pardon means an executive order vacating a conviction. The following is a complete list of persons pardoned and a complete list of persons granted clemency by George W. Bush. President Bush was regarded by many as being one of the most cautious presidents in modern U.S. history when granting pardons or commutations.[1] President Bush granted presidential pardons to 189 persons who served their entire sentence and commuted in addition the sentences of 11 persons.[2]

Definitions[edit]

A commutation means a mitigation of the sentence of someone currently serving a sentence for a crime pursuant to a conviction, without vacating the conviction itself.

Pardons and commutations[edit]

This is the list of people pardoned or clemenced by a United States president, ordered by date of pardon or commutation.
