Governor Signs Pardons Or Commutations For 34 Convicted Killers


As the governor of Louisiana, Jon Bel Edwards, gets ready to leave office, he has signed off on pardons or commutations of sentences for many criminals.

Although his final three months are in effect, it isn’t known if Edwards will sign more. As of now, the list goes through Dec. 13.

Those who have been granted pardons or commutations of sentences, include 34 convicted killers. Many others on the road to freedom are habitual offenders.

About 12 of these cases are from Orleans and Jefferson Parish. Then, seven of the inmates were found guilty of offenses in the Baton Rouge area. There are several others from Monroe, Lake Charles, and various other locations in the state.

Specifically, the governor has decided to pardon or commute the sentences of three criminals convicted in Caddo Parish. They will be freed from jail soon.

This includes John Spano who was found guilty of second-degree battery for hitting his lawyer in court, leading to his unconsciousness. He had also faced a rape charge and was a fourth time offender. He was given a life sentence for striking his attorney Rickey Swift.

To add, Ricky Washington was found guilty of the 1979 killing of Grady Haynes who owned a store in Shreveport. He was fatally shot while working behind the counter.
