Brenda Jean Dolenz Helmer is a resident of Fort Worth, Texas, and is among those pardoned by the outgoing president. She had entered a guilty plea in the case and had got four years probation and somewhat about 600 hours of community service.
After reading about Ms Helmer’s case, I am actually glad that President Bush took this decision. I would have done the same. Ms Helmer said she was really praying and hoping for a presidential pardon for, guess what, almost a decade, so as to enable her to continue dental missionary work. She had been engaged in community service even before the verdict.

Correction: The earlier draft posted was incorrect and Ms Helmer wrote to me pointing it out. This is the updated draft. I would like to thank Ms Helmer for her time and patience in writing to me.
