Eight people, including a Lincoln woman, have been pardoned by President Barack Obama.
The White House released the names of the pardoned individuals Friday.
Christine Marie Rossiter, of Lincoln, was found guilty of conspiracy to distribute less than 50 kilograms of marijuana and sentenced to three years probation and 500 hours of community service in 1992.
The names were released without comment or explanation.
The other pardoned individuals were convicted of crimes ranging from conspiring to distribute methamphetamine to selling alligator hides.
Friday’s action marked the second set of pardons Obama has granted since becoming president. The first set, last December, went to nine people whose crimes included mutilation of coins, a liquor law violation and conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Like the earlier pardons, the latest did not involve anyone well known.
