It £ Northwest Arkansas TIMES, Friday, S*pt. 13, 1974 Haggard Pardon Made Known SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Country singer Merle Hagg a r d had his California crinimal record wiped clean when he was pardoned by Goy. Ronald Rea'gan in an unpublicized move in 1972, state records show. Haggard was one of 513 felons who were pardoned, received reprieves or had their sentences commuted by the Republican chief executive in the First seven years of his administration. The popular country and western entertainer was pardoned by Reagan on March 1, 1972, although the act was nev er made public before. Haggard, whose best selling record "Okie from Muskogee" made a national reputation for him, served two years on probation for second-degree burglary and escape in Kern County in 1958. A pardon restores full rights to a convicted felon, Herbert E Ellingwood, Reagan's legal at fairs secretary, said Thursday. - "A pardon restores all their civil rights and gives them a badge of rehabilitation," Elling wood said. "They don't have to report that they had a con viction and, if it comes up, they have proof they went beyond that." ; . Ellingwood said a record o. all pardons is open to the pub lie but Reagan does not publi eize pardons as former Gov Edmund G. Brown Sr. did.
