A pardon is an order by the Governor which relieves one or all legal consequences of a conviction and restores the individual to a position as if they had never been convicted. This means a criminal record should no longer stand in the way of applying for a job, apartment, loan, or anything else one might need. Some people characterize a pardon as an act of forgiveness by the Governor. A Fast Track Pardon process is also available for non-violent marijuana convictions.
