PORTLAND, Ore. – Oregon Governor Kate Brown pardoned a former gang member after he pleaded guilty to carjacking at the age of 19.

Dondrae “Choo” Fair, 44, said he turned his life around. He returned to gang life after prison and was shot in the chest while leaving a funeral in 2000.

Fair proved he turned his life around after he stopped his gang activity and later became a mentor to educate young people.

On Monday, Gov. Brown said a lot of people supported clemency for Fair, including victims of his crime.
