Subject: Patty Hearst Trivia Question
So Patty Hearst served 22 months in prison and had the remaining 8 months of her sentence commuted
by Jimmy Carter. Reagan reportedly considered a presidential pardon but decided against it. In
2000, Patty wrote a formal request for a presidential pardon from Clinton. The US attorney in
California strongly objected, writing, "I strongly oppose the pardon application filed by Patricia
Hearst. The attitude of Hearst has always been that she is a person above the law and that, based on
her wealth and social position, she is not accountable for her conduct, despite the jury's verdict."
