Mark Wahlberg Wants Pardon For Crimes Committed as Teenager

Posted: December 6th, 2014 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Mark Wahlberg Wants Pardon For Crimes Committed as TeenagerSubmit Comment
In 1988, when Mark Wahlberg was sixteen years old, he hit a man in the head with a wooden stick while trying to steal two cases of alcohol in front of a convenience store in Boston. He then punched another man in the face while trying to avoid police.

Now, the actor has filed an application with the state of Massachusetts, asking for a pardon, claiming that he was a troubled teenager and has since dedicated himself to becoming a better person in his adult years so he can be a role model to his children and others.

Wahlberg goes on to explain that he was high on marijuana and narcotics at the time. He was convicted as an adult for assault and other charges and sentenced to three months in jail. He was released after serving about 45 days.

"I have not engaged in philanthropic efforts in order to make people forget about my past," Wahlberg said about his charity work and donations. "To the contrary, I want people to remember my past so that I can serve as an example of how lives can be turned around and how people can be redeemed."

To get a pardon, the Massachusetts Parole Board would have to review Wahlberg's case and make a recommendation to the governor, who has the ultimate authority to grant pardons, which are rarely issued in the state.

Dude knocked out some guy's eyeball. Like he should receive a pardon for that. And why? because he's a celebrity? No way. No special treatment. If the average people can't get pardoned for their crimes, neither can he.

Not like Hollywood gives a a sh*t he's a white trash sc*mbag hoodlum.

Agree with fink. You did what you did, you served your time now live with it, don't get it erased, it's your past for a reason.

Also, He doesn't really deserve it..

Why don't you give your own eye and then you'll get your pardon.

You know, an eye for eye sh*t.

Marky Mark is a perfectly average actor, always giving middle of the road, vanilla performances that are the very definition of "okay".

But do not ever pardon this smug son of a c*ck ever. He f*cked that guy up something awful. I'm sure if you asked the victim about this he would say, "f*ck no!, never!" and then vomit on anyone in his proximity.

Also if you google around, the REAL reason this sc*mbag wants a pardon is because this conviction on his CRIMINAL record is preventing him from getting restaurant licenses for his sh*tty "Wahlburgers" chain that he co-owns with his dipsh*t brother, Donnie Wahlberg.

The biggest state they want to expand in is California, and his criminal record prevents that as he is denied a license.

Wahlberg ends the letter with... "P.S. - Say hello to your mother for me."

Why not?

He robbed a store at 16.

30 years later he is a multimillionaire, a father, quietly married and doing philanthropy. And Michael Bay movies...

Not the worst example really. It's not like he needs it just for the hell of it - his salary won't change because of it, so maybe he is sincere.

It's not like he shot someone or starred in Tim Burtons remake of Planet of the Apes.

Pardon the midget.
