Robert Downey, Jr. Pardoned for His 90s Drug Arrest

Robert Downey, Jr. Pardoned for His 90s Drug Arrest

Robert Downey, Jr. has been pardoned for his late 1996 crime when he was pulled over on a Los Angeles highway. Heroin, cocaine and a pistol were found in his vehicle.

The 50-year-old actor is one of 91 people to be pardoned on Thursday (December 24).

The pardon does not erase records that a conviction occurred, but rather, restores voting rights and shows the person in question has shown “exemplary behavior.”

Robert was pardoned by Governor Jerry Brown for his 1996 arrest. He spent a year in jail for his crimes.
