Governor Pardons are discretionary and require submission of a lengthy petition demonstrating your worthiness of clemency.See question

The defendant certainly has the right to a bond hearing that has undoubtedly taken place. His criminal history as well as the seriousness of the charges would have been considered when setting his required bond amount. The weakness of the prosecution evidence and defenses available are more appropriately considered at a preliminary hearing or trial. His lawyer will guide him through his ordeal. Public defenders are generally carrying a heavy caseload and may not have the bedside manner of a privately retained attorney, but issues that you described will not be overlooked. He should be vindicated if the evidence is as you described.See question
