A man pardoned by a Kentucky governor is back in jail and charged with trying to strangle a woman.
What makes the story even more unusual is that according to police, this is not the first woman the suspect has tried to strangle since he’s been out.
Police said Joheim Bandy, 20, was arrested as a teen, then pardoned by former Kentucky governor, Matt Bevin, in 2019 along with more than 400 other convicted criminals.
“Mr. Bandy is known to us. We actually have a couple of strangulation cases active with him,” said assistant Covington Police chief Brian Valenti.
Investigators said they found Bandy had attacked a woman and tried to strangle her.
