You may apply for a pardon if your conviction was in a Georgia court. For this, you must finish serving your sentence and wait five years before you will be eligible. During the five years, you cannot have committed any crimes. You cannot have any unpaid fines or have other charges pending against you. You can get the application from the Parole Board. There is no charge to apply. See [http://www.pap.state.ga.us/opencms/opencms/].
