What is a PARDON?

A pardon is an official statement of forgiveness of your offenses issued by the Governor. A pardon does NOT remove the conviction from your official records; however, a pardon will generally restore your civil rights, such as the rights to vote and hold public office. A pardon may remove barriers to employment, professional licensing, public housing, social services, education, and other opportunities.

What is an Expungement?

An expungement seals your record, so that your state background check will no longer show a criminal record. Standards for receiving an expungement are high.
