Montgomery Man Receives Presidential Pardon

A Montgomery man convicted of theft in the early 90's is receiving an official pardon from President Bush.

Daryl Toney was convicted of misdemeanor theft in 1993. Now, that conviction is being expunged thanks to President Bush.

Toney and twenty-eight other convicts were approved for pardons in what is an end-of-the-year tradition for U.S presidents.

A Birmingham man, William Lucius Jones Jr., who was convicted in the 1970's on illegal firearm possessions also made the list.

President Bush has issued 142 so far during his presidency. Than number falls well short of the average set by most other modern day presidents.
