WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Middle Tennessean man was among 29 people pardoned by President Bush.
Charles Eddie Trobaugh of Whitleyville in Jackson County had his 1965 conviction on liquor charges forgiven. Trobaugh served a sentence of three years probation.
In all, Bush pardoned 29 convicts and reduced the prison sentence of one more in the end-of-the-year presidential tradition.
Justice Department spokesman Erik Ablin said Bush has granted 142 pardons and commuted five sentences since taking office in 2001 -- lagging far behind the pace set by most modern presidents.
