MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Former President Donald Trump issued a pardon for a former Alabama state representative who pleaded guilty in 2019 for his role in a health care fraud case, according to a report from the Associated Press (AP).
Former state Rep. Ed Henry was one of the dozens to receive a pardon in the last day of Donald Trump's presidency. Henry had been a state chairman of the 2016 Trump campaign.
In 2019, Henry pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting theft of government property in a plea deal with federal prosecutors, according to AP.
Prior to the pardon, Henry was sentenced to serve two years on probation, the report said.
