Gov. Nixon pardons man convicted in Butler Co. burglary

(KFVS) -

Gov. Jay Nixon granted pardons to eight men and one woman convicted of non-violent offenses. 

Each of the individuals has completed his or her sentence and has become a law-abiding citizen, according to Nixon's office.

One of the pardons went to a man convicted of burglary in Butler County.

Richard Owens served in the Missouri Army National Guard, the Georgia Army National Guard and the United States Army, and was decorated for service in Germany and Iraq before receiving a medical discharge. He joined the military after completing his probation for being convicted in Butler County of property damage and second-degree burglary for stealing a five-gallon water jug that was a quarter full of mixed change in 1993.
