SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA – Robert Downey Jr. – a huge Hollywood star – was granted a pardon today by the governor of California.

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced that he has granted 91 pardons – and Robert Downey Jr. was on the list.

The individuals granted pardons all completed their sentences and have been released from custody for more than a decade without further criminal activity. All applicants for a pardon who were eligible obtained a Certificate of Rehabilitation, which is an order from a superior court declaring that a person convicted of a crime is now rehabilitated. A gubernatorial pardon may be granted to people who have demonstrated exemplary behavior and have lived productive and law-abiding lives following their conviction. Pardons are not granted unless they are earned, the governor’s office explained in a statement.

Downey Jr. – the star of the “Iron Man” and “Avenger” movies, along with many others – went to prison years ago for drug convictions. One ehe got out of prison, his star rose quickly and now he’s one of the top male actors in Hollywood.

    It’s nice to see someone get their life together, and get their life back. This is how it is done!
