President Bush has issued full pardons to two men convicted in separate fraud cases in Wisconsin and Oklahoma.

The pardons announced Wednesday marked the 18th and 19th of Bush’s presidency, according to the Justice Department. Bush has also commuted the prison sentences of two individuals since taking office on Jan. 20, 2001.

Those newly pardoned are:

  • Anthony John Curreri of West Bend, Wis. Sentenced to three years’ probation for mail fraud in March 1976.
  • Craven Wilford McLemore of Gracemont, Okla. Served six months in prison and 18 months probation and fined $10,000 in February 1983 for fraud conspiracy conviction.
