FBI looks into former Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin's controversial pardons

The FBI is investigating former Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin who controversially issued more than 400 pardons in the weeks after he lost his reelection bid.

Among those who were granted clemency after Bevin lost his seat on November 5 was murderer Patrick Baker, who had served two years of a 19-year sentence for killing a man during a home invasion.

Bevin also pardoned Micah Schoettle who was sentenced in 2018 to 23 years in prison for multiple sexual offences involving children.

State Rep. Chris Harris said a criminal investigator contacted him last week seeking more information on Bevin’s pardons.
