Who were the last people to be pardoned?
Apparently George W. Bush used the Presidential power of pardoning and commutation in a more restrained fashion than most. 189 people were pardoned, but had served their full sentence first. Of the 11 who's sentences he commuted, the last two were Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean - two border guards convicted of shooting and wounding a drug smuggler, than trying to cover up the incident. The sentences were commuted on January 19, 2009.

Who did President Obama in his last days of office reprieve from prison Where do you find list of these people?
First, let me say there is considerable misinformation on some partisan websites, and Mr. Obama has not "pardoned terrorists," contrary to what you might read. Most of those whose sentences he commuted were low-level drug dealers, who may have been over-charged under previous drug laws. The Justice Department has a list of the people whose sentences Mr. Obama commuted, or who received a pardon. The link is https://www.justice.gov/pardon/obama-commutations
Asked in Antigone, Oedipus Rex
Did Creon hide Antigone and tell everyone that she was dead?
No, Theban King Creon didn't hide Antigone and tell everyone that she was dead. The punishment for violating the King's law was death by stoning. The King commuted the sentence to imprisonment in an isolated, remote, walled up cave. Antigone's procession to the cave was witnessed by the chorus and by the King.
Asked in Capital Punishment
Current death penalty in Illinois?
It was permanently abolished in Illinois earlier this year, with all remaining inmates on death row having their sentences commuted to life imprisonment. However, the death penalty in Illinois has been out of use for 10 years. Governor George Ryan supported the moral case for the death penalty but placed a moratorium on executions after two publicized miscarriages - Rolando Cruz and Anthony Porter. Both narrowly escaped wrongful execution, with Porter being spared only 50 hours before his execution was due.

Asked in Charles Manson
How many stays of execution did Charles Manson get?
None. Manson never needed a stay of execution because he never got that close to execution. Two years after his death sentence the Supreme Court ruled California's mode of execution as unconstitutional, and the death penalty was struck down in 1972, automatically commuting death cases to life with parole. When the death penalty was reinstated all commuted death sentences remained as 'life' sentences.
Asked in Barack Obama
How many felons has Obama pardoned?
As of September 2016, President Obama has issued 562 total commutations, during the eight years of his presidency; the majority of these occurred over the past several years. Mr. Obama has shortened the sentences of more federal inmates than any other president since Calvin Coolidge during the 1920s. However, it should be noted that many of the "felons" whose sentences he commuted were low-level drug offenders, men and women who had been given excessively harsh sentences at the height of the War on Drugs.
