I plead guilty to a non-violent class A felony yesturday morning. I have never been charged with a felony before. I should have been put in prison for 22 months. If it were not for the mitigating factors I would not have been given a downward departure. The judge and prosicutor were very stern with me but also very fair. I could also tell the prosicutor was understanding of my crime, I feel that with the breaks the prosicutor gave me it would be distasteful to ask for a pardon this soon, but I would not like to be a felon for the rest of my life. I know Governer Kitzhaber is not well known for giving pardons, but I feel he would be very empathetic to my circumstances.
Also what kind of lawyer would I get to start the process of getting a pardon.
