A U.S. Marine convicted of killing a transgender Filipina has been an absolute pardon to US Marine Joseph Scott Pemberton by the PRRD. He was jailed for the death of transgender Jennifer Laude.
It was lately reported that he must remain in prison while her family and the government appeal a Philippine court order allowing his early release for good behavior, authorities said Thursday.
But today Joseph Scott was granted pardon by the PRRD.

A regional court northwest of Manila ruled Lance Cpl. Joseph Scott Pemberton should be released early from his six-to-10-year sentence for killing Jennifer Laude. Her family immediately protested the Tuesday decision.
Presidential spokesman Harry Roque, who once legally represented Laude’s relatives, said officials could not release Pemberton until the her family’s appeal is heard. The government is preparing a separate appeal, he said.
The regional court ruling rekindled protests in the country that U.S. military members get special treatment under the allies’ Visiting Forces Agreement, which allows temporary deployments of U.S. forces in the country for large-scale combat exercises.
