• Easter Pardons


    LOS ANGELES (CNS) – A convicted murderer from Los Angeles County, who served 15 years in prison and who has led a clean life since, was one of 65 Californians granted Easter-time pardons by Gov. Jerry Brown, it was announced today.

    Robert Phillip Brown was convicted of murder in 1977, served 15 years in prison and 33 months on parole. Last year, he obtained a Superior Court order attesting he has led a clean life since his release.

    But the governor’s office did not reveal details about his 1977 murder sentence.

    The governor, who spent four years studying to be a Catholic priest in a Jesuit seminary, has advocated pardons for people who deserve them. On Good Friday, the governor pardoned 65 people who had completed their sentences and had been free for more than a decade without further criminal activity, and

    The gubernatorial pardons were granted to those “who have demonstrated exemplary behavior following their conviction,” according to the governor’s office in a statement today. Brown also forgave people with good records last Christmas.

    A San Diegan named Francisco Mauricio Nunes, who was sentenced in 1996 for involuntary manslaughter with a weapon, also was pardoned.
