Slick Rick Pardoned
(AP) Rapper Ricky "Slick Rick" Walters, who spent more than five years in prison on a 1991 attempted murder conviction and faced threats of deportation years after rehabilitating his life, was granted a full and unconditional pardon Friday by New York Gov. David Paterson.
Walters, 43, has been under threat of being sent back to his native United Kingdom, although he has lived in the United States since he was a child.
In a statement, he expressed gratitude to Paterson and his lawyers, and hoped that he could finally put the turmoil behind him. - more on this story
