Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb today has granted clemency to Berto N. Dooley. age 40, who was convicted in Elkhart County in 2003 for possession of cocaine and being a habitual substance offender.
According to the executive order issued by Holcomb, Dooley had less than two years remaining on the executed portion of his sentence and has gotten a bachelor's degree while incarcerated.
Dooley will have to complete a six month home detention period under the supervision of the IN Dept. of Correction. Most recently Dooley has been held at the South Bend Community Re-Entry Center.
This is only the second executive order Holcomb has issued in all of 2019. The other one was a waiver of hours of service regulations for drivers hauling propane that was issued earlier this month.
