Yes, it is very difficult for any person to get a pardon but it is possible.

The responses of Attorney Chris Beck to any questions posed on Avvo do NOT establish an Attorney-client relationship. Attorney Beck is available for private hire and consultation for a fee. Only after Attorney Beck is retained as counsel, or agrees to discuss this matter with you privately, shall he be legally deemed to be your Attorney. His responses herein are an attempt to assist persons temporarily based upon the very extremely limited amount of information provided by the questioner
Pardons have never been easy to obtain, but there is always a chance. The convict can fill out an application on his/her own, or they can hire an attorney to submit the application on their behalf. I am attaching a web link to a brief article from the Ohio Department of Corrections regarding executive clemency options and procedures.
It is possible to receive a pardon from the governor, but the odds of it happening are much greater if an attorney assists the individual with the process. The individual needs a good lawyer.
