Barack Obama Pardons Alligator Hide Salesman, 7 Others

Today in presidential pardons, Barack Obama has given the proverbial "get out of jail free" (all of the jail terms and periods of probation have already been served) card to eight folks, including a marijuana importer; a conspirator; a guy who manufactured, assembled, modified, and distributed equipment for "unauthorized decryption of satellite cable programming"; a guy who transferred a firearm without paying the transfer tax; a meth distributor; a marijuana distributor; a woman who structured transactions to "evade reporting requirements"; and, perhaps most picturesque, a fellow who aided and abetted "the possession and sale of illegal American alligator hides." This is Obama's second set of presidential pardons. [White House]
