Arkansas governor to pardon son on drug charges

(by Ed Payne, CNN) -- Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe plans to pardon his son for a felony drug charge from more than a decade ago.

“It will probably be in the next few weeks,” said Matt DeCample, a spokesman for the governor.

“For any pardons the governor does the person has to have finished all terms of their sentence … and then had a period of time where they’ve shown they have straightened their lives out.”

Kyle Beebe, who is now 34, was charged in 2003 with possession of a controlled substance — marijuana — with intent to deliver. He was fined and sentenced to three years supervised probation, according to CNN affiliate KATV.
