January 2, 2015

BOSTON (AP) — The Governor’s Council has granted two more clemency requests, approving pardons for two convicts.

The council voted 7-1 on Friday to pardon True-See Allah, who was convicted in 1991 of armed assault with attempt to murder for his role in a shooting that left a man paralyzed. He was not the shooter.

The panel approved Thomas Schoolcraft’s pardon on a 5-3 vote. Schoolcraft had received a suspended sentence and two years’ probation after being convicted of breaking and entering in 2006.

Gov. Deval Patrick had recommended the pardons.
