U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman told reporters Monday he will determine if any of the state inmates pardoned by former Gov. Matt Bevin also committed any federal crimes.
“I will say this in regard to the underlying conduct in these pardons that were received … if the underlying conduct took place in the Western District of Kentucky, it will be treated like any other violation of federal law,” Coleman said.
“We’ll look at it through the lens of the statute of limitations, we’ll look at it through the lens of double jeopardy. But if the underlying conduct meets our federal standards, we will aggressively prosecute.”
