President Biden granted full pardons to six people who have served their sentences and have since succeeded in turning their lives around and become respected members of their communities, Fox News reports.

One of those pardoned is a survivor of domestic violence who was convicted of murdering her abusive husband in 1976. The other five served sentences for drug and alcohol-related offenses. 

Beverly Ann Ibn-Tamas, 80, was convicted of second-degree murder after the fatal shooting of her husband in 1976 when she was 33 years old. Pregnant at the time, Ibn-Tamas testified that her husband physically and verbally abused her and that he had assaulted her shortly before she shot and killed him. She was sentenced to one to five years of incarceration.

According to Fox News, Ibn-Tamas was able to rebuild her life after serving her sentence, becoming the Director of Nursing for an Ohio healthcare business where she continues to work as a case manager.

Biden called America “a nation of laws and second chances, redemption, and rehabilitation” in a statement earlier this year.

The others who were pardoned include Gary Park Davis, 66, who served a six-month sentence for conducting an unlawful cocaine transaction by telephone, and Edward Lincoln De Coito III, 50, who served a sentence of under two years for marijuana trafficking.

There was also Vincent Ray Flores, 37, who was sentenced to four months for using ecstasy and consuming alcohol while serving in the military; Charlie Byrnes Jackson, 77, who was sentenced to five years probation for selling whiskey illegally when he was 18; and John Dix Nock III, 72, who served six months in a community treatment center for a marijuana offense 27 years ago.
