When I was 17 years old. I was put on straight probation for 5 years. Since then , I haven't had any altercations with the law. For 33 years this dark cloud has linger over my head. For the opportunity to be on any court jury, for employment opportunities, etc. Thanks
Certainly the Governor has the ability, but the real question is will he. Pardons are extremely rare. However, you can't get if you doh't ask. Search out a lawyer that handles such matters, most likely around Austin. Good luck.
Yes, but pardons are very rare and usually only happen when there's a showing of actual innocence. Governors tend not to pardon people if they aren't alleging innocence because its a bad political move.
The answer is yes - but the real question is will he? As noted - pardons are rare. You can in vest in an attorney to make a run at this for your. Use the AVVO site to assist you in locating one.
Governor of Texas has authority to sign a pardon for straight probation but the black letter law says he does not have authority if the probation was terminated early. Pardons are so rare that I doubt that has ever been litigated. I mean, who would even have standing to complain?
If you get a pardon that would make you eligible to file for an expunction.
