SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California Gov. Jerry Brown has pardoned five ex-convicts facing deportation, including two who fled the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia four decades ago.

The men were among 56 receiving pardons Friday. Brown commuted the sentences of 14 others.

Sokha Chhan and Phann Pheach both face deportation to Cambodia. Pheach was born in Thailand.

Chhan was convicted of misdemeanor domestic violence. Pheach was convicted of possessing drugs. His wife says he is in federal custody.

Also pardoned was Daniel Maher, convicted of kidnapping and robbery and facing deportation to China.

Two men whose home countries were not immediately known were also pardoned.

Pardons do not prevent deportations.
