DeSantis pardons those charged with disobeying local COVID mandates

Today, Governor Ron DeSantis gave full pardons for all Floridians facing criminal or civil penalty for disobeying local COVID-19 restrictions and mandates through Executive Order.

He expanded upon action taken in May to protect Floridians from local government overreach related to COVID-19 restrictions by proposing statewide, categorical grant of full pardons of both civil and criminal penalties to individuals or businesses punished for breaking what he called “unscientific, unnecessary directives.”

DeSantis pointed to former gym owners Mike and Jillian Carnevale as examples of Floridians who have faced criminal penalties, including possible jail time, for not complying with local mask mandates at their former business in Broward County.
