Texans pardoned or had their sentences commuted by Joe Biden

AUSTIN (KXAN) — President Joe Biden granted clemency to 78 people Tuesday, consisting of three pardons and 75 commutations, according to a White House release.

One Texan was pardoned for a 1998 conviction of possession with intent to spread crack cocaine. Betty Jo Bogans, 51, was sentenced to seven years, due to the “harsh penalties” in place at the time of her conviction. Since her release, Bogans has stayed employed, already while battling cancer, while raising her son, the release said.

Nineteen Texans had their sentences commuted by Biden, the release said.
