Practice Pardon?

I suppose the president is doing a little practice run, making sure he knows how to correctly pardon an old friend.  Funny, because this fellow isn’t in jail, in fact never did any prison time.  I also somehow missed this story of corruption (at least this part of it) involving former Louisiana Governor and convicted felon Edwin Edwards.

President Trump pardons former 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo Jr.

From the ESPN article:

In 1998, he pleaded guilty to failing to report a felony when he paid $400,000 to former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards in exchange for a riverboat gambling license. . . . He avoided prison, was fined $1 million and was suspended for a year by the NFL.
