PARADISE, Calif. -- Governor Jerry Brown announced 143 pardons and 131 commutations to people convicted of crimes in the state of California.
One of those people was a wife and mother who narrowly escaped the Camp Fire in northern California.
Heather Burnett says she’s still traumatized over the loss of her home to the camp fire but the greatest gift this season is knowing she’s been pardoned by Governor Brown.
“In '98 I was arrested with the intention to manufacture methamphetamine which was in direct relation to the people I was associating with," says Heather.
Heather’s husband, Jason Burnett, also received a pardon by the Governor last month.
