Writing a Petition for Executive Clemency – 844-292-1318 Illinois legal aid

This video will help you understand the process of petitioning for executive clemency, the process one must undertake to receive a Governors pardon. Whenever a person has been convicted of any criminal offense, they are unable to expunge any of their criminal record. Sealing may be a possibility for minor, non-violent misdemeanor convictions and very few felony convictions. To find out if you are eligible for a sealing of your criminal conviction, please consult Illinois Legal Aid Online for information regarding the sealing process. For a person that cannot seal their criminal conviction, the only way that record can be cleared is by receiving a Governors pardon.
