Presidential Pardons

President Bush has granted pardons to four people, none of whom served any jail time for their crimes.

Those receiving pardons included two bank employees convicted of embezzlement and misuse of funds in two separate cases, a man convicted of a counterfeiting charge, and another involved in an interstate theft case.

Tuesday's announcement brought the total number of pardons or sentence commutations granted by Bush to just 31, far below the pace of most modern presidents.

Bush's father, George H-W Bush, granted 77 pardons in his single term in office. And Bill Clinton pardoned more than 450 people during his eight years as president, including 176 on his final day in office.
