The California Constitution empowers the Governor to grant executive clemency, including pardons, at his discretion and on conditions he deems proper. Pardons forgive a crime but do not erase a conviction.
The procedure by which California residents may apply for a pardon is set forth in the California Penal Code. Details regarding the pardon- application process and eligibility requirements can be viewed on the Governor’s website at http://gov.ca.gov/pdf/interact/how_to_apply_for_a_pardon.pdf.
