Mass. man among 17 Obama pardons
BOSTON (AP) — A Massachusetts man is among 17 people receiving pardons from President Barack Obama.
Obama issued the pardons Friday to people in 13 states, largely for minor offenses.
Among them is James Anthony Bordinaro of Gloucester. The White House announcement said he had been sentenced to 12 months’ imprisonment, three years supervised release and a $55,000 fine for conspiracy to restrain, suppress and eliminate competition in violation of the Sherman Act and conspiracy to submit false statements.
A published telephone listing for him could not be found Friday.
The White House offered no details on why these particular people were selected by Obama, who has issued relatively few pardons since taking office.
