Gov. Rauner Pardons Two of Past Crimes

CHICAGO (AP) -- Gov. Bruce Rauner has issued two pardons since becoming governor nearly three months ago.

   The weekend pardons by the Republican went to Neil Hebert and Michael Sullivan. Rauner rejected 57 other clemency petitions.

   The 43-year-old Hebert was convicted of theft in Champaign County when he was 20. He served two years of probation.

   Rauner's office says he inherited nearly 3,000 clemency petitions as he took over as governor.
