California's Governor Pardons 65 Over Easter Weekend

Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday continued a pattern of pardons tied to Christian religious days, granting clemency to 65 convicted criminals, including a Los Angeles man who spent 15 years in prison for a 1977 murder conviction.

Brown's pardon of Robert Phillip Brown provided no details of the ex-convict's crime, nor his case for clemency, other than to say the man had obtained a Superior Court order last year testifying that since release from prison, "he has lived an honest and upright life, exhibited good moral character and conducted himself as a law-abiding citizen."
