Factors Considered in Pennsylvania Pardons Process

In order to be considered for a pardon, a completed application and supportive materials must be submitted to the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons. When considering whether to grant a pardon, the Board of Pardons considers the following list of factors when reviewing pardon applications:

The list of factors above is relatively broad and not clearly defined. To increase the likelihood that a pardon is granted, you should talk to an experienced Pennsylvania pardon attorney. For example, an experienced pardon lawyer can probably advise as to how much time must generally pass before the Board would consider granting a pardon in various misdemeanor and felony cases.
