Sometimes it’s anybody’s guess who gets pardoned or given clemency in Colorado

The Denver Post: In 1989, Gov. Roy Romer pardoned four people and commuted the sentences of four others.

That’s about all we know.

We know even less about clemency orders Romer issued in 1992, 1996, 1997 and 1998.

No official names; no official reasons; not even how many there were.


Just before Christmas 2010, Gov. Bill Ritter issued pardons to 20 people.

There are no official records for any of them, either.
