Brown announces pardons for 7 San Diego criminals

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who was sentenced 17 years ago in San Diego County for involuntary manslaughter with a weapon, and a handful of local drug offenders, were among 65 people who have served out their terms and led a clean life who were pardoned by Governor Jerry Brown, it was announced Saturday.

Those who received pardons have all completed their sentences and had been free for more than a decade without further criminal activity, and the governor pardoned 65 such people across the state on Good Friday.

The gubernatorial pardons were granted to those "who have demonstrated exemplary behavior following their conviction," according to the governor's office in a statement Saturday. Brown, a former Jesuit theology student, also forgave people with good records last Christmas.

Among San Diegans who received pardons were:

-- Francisco Mauricio Nunes, sentenced in 1996 for involuntary manslaughter with a weapon. He served two years in prison and three years parole;

-- Craig Alan Bechtel, who was sentenced 1992 for narcotic manufacturing. He served a year in prison and three years probation;

-- Jesus Roberto Cabezuela, who served two years and six months in prison and two years parole for manufacturing a controlled substance. He was sentenced in 1988;

-- Michael O'Neal Carroll, sentenced in 1995 for transportation of a controlled substance. He served three years probation;

-- William Joseph Cicarell, who served three years probation for possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. He was sentenced in 1993;

-- Kenneth Nash, Sr., sentenced in 1997 for possession of a controlled substance. He served two years in prison and three years parole;

-- Anthony Dametrion Rew, sentenced in 1995 for possession of a controlled substance. He spent 20 months in prison and 29 months on parole.
