Default Governor Strickland grants clemency to 78 people out of 233 cases


Knighten's clemency was among 296 requests decided by Strickland and released today. He approved 78 of them, or 26.3 percent.
Strickland OK'd 33 of 63 cases left over from 2005 and 2006, Gov. Bob Taft's last years in office, and 45 of 233 cases submitted to him in 2007.

Knighten will be the only inmate released immediately. Inmates in the other nine cases will become eligible for parole following further review by the Ohio Parole Board.
The governor has another 403 clemency requests pending from 2008 and this year.

My husband was on that list. We had tried for Clemancy 3 months after he went to Prison. That was April of 2006. I wrote letter after letter to Strickland as we were turned down by the board. Guess what?!? Strickland denied him to. But that's o.k.....my Baby will be home in 4 more months!!!!

Justice served! I know him and his family and they are just bubbling over with joy and excitement, thanking God for answering prayer. I just hope his story helps some of these kids today that think they own the streets.
