- Pardon Process
A pardon is a forgiveness of the applicant's offense(s). Board Members conduct a pardon hearing and a majority of the Board then makes a recommendation to the Governor.
To be granted a pardon, an applicant must have demonstrated "good citizenship", as well as a specific, verified, and compelling need for a pardon. In making its decision, the Board views the entire application packet.
