The Nevada Pardons Board turned down an application for pardon Wednesday morning from Conan Pope, who was 15 years old when he killed his abusive father. The board, which consists of the Nevada Supreme Court, the attorney general and the governor, voted six to two. Justices Mark Gibbons and Michael Cherry, who both sat on Pope’s case in District Court, cast the votes in favor of the pardon.
