Apply for a Pardon
If you are not eligible for expungement, you may consider applying for a pardon. Pardons are given out by the governor, usually at the end of his/her term.
The application requires 3 letters of recommendation, as well as a letter from the person seeking a pardon. There is no cost to apply for a pardon. Download the application for full instructions.
If you receive a full pardon, you become eligible to apply for expungement, even if your convictions would not otherwise be expungeable.
What if I already have a pardon?
