What is a Governors Pardon?
A governors pardon is an executive recognition that a person has become a productive citizen. The pardon is granted by the Oklahoma Governor after a recommendation by the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board.
The Parole Board is a constitutionally created Board charged with making clemency recommendations to the Governor for adult felons.
Expungements vs. Governors Pardon
Being granted a governors pardon does not clear a person’s record. Any person convicted of a non-violent felony that has received a governors pardon for the offense and has not since been convicted nor have pending suits may file a motion of expungement after 10 years.
