TEXAS PARDONS, CLEMANCY, AND PRESIDENTIAL PARDONS

What is a Texas Governor's Pardon?  An unconditional act of executive clemency by the Governor which serves to release the grantee from the conditions of his or her sentence and from any disabilities imposed by law thereby.

What Code Section is a Pardon Under?  §143.1. Authority To Grant Pardons reads that "Except in cases of treason or impeachment, after conviction, the governor may grant a full pardon upon the recommendation and advice of a majority of the board." (Texas Constitution, Article IV, §11; Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Articles 48.01 and 48.03).

How can it help me? For individuals that suffered a Texas Conviction, a Pardon is typically the only method by which to clear and Expunge the offense.

What are my other options? There is only one exception to clear or Expunge a Conviction in Texas. If you suffered an alcohol related conviction as a minor (under 21 years of age), and then had no other convictions until your turned 21, you may be eligable for an Expunction without applying for or obtaining a Texas Governor's Pardon.

Otherwise, until the Law changes, a Conviction in Texas is ineligable for an Expunction without obtaining a Governor's Pardon.

 

PRESIDENTIAL PARDONS

What is a Presidential Pardon?  In Contrast to a Governor's Pardon, Presidential Pardons are only available for convictions that occurred in the Federal Court.

How can it help me? For individuals convicted of a Federal Offense, a Presidential Pardon can help clear the offense and aid in obtaining employment, rights, and immigration status.
