Page 230. " Tom told me the governor's pardon of innocence made me eligible for a state statue "

The governor’s pardon of innocence is granted to an individual when that person has been incarcerated for a crime in which they did not commit.  The pardon dismisses all criminal charges and allows for the individual to seek compensation from the State for the time that they were imprisoned.  In order to receive a pardon of innocence, an individual must apply.  The person must petition the government for a declaration of innocence when they are wrongly convicted and imprisoned.  They are granted the pardon when they are later determined innocent.  The governor’s pardon of innocence also erases the conviction.
