A Campbellsville man, Christopher Lynn Carney, was one of 197 people pardoned by former Gov. Steve Beshear (D) before he left office early last week.
In his final executive action before leaving office, Beshear granted the pardons and six commutations on Monday night to individuals sentenced for a range of offenses.
Carney is the only Campbellsville resident on the list to be issued a pardon. While he's glad to have been pardoned, Carney said its usefulness is limited by the fact that his record hasn't been cleared as a result.
