Gov. Peter Shumlin is clearing the criminal records of two Vermont women.
The pardons mark the first he's made since taking office.
A spokesperson for the governor tells us one woman sold a small amount of cocaine to an undercover cop in 1986. She hasn't reoffended and wanted the pardon to become a nurse. The other woman was convicted in 2001 for selling heroin and escape. She beat her addiction, helped a federal investigation, and wanted the pardon in order to become a licensed professional.
