A pardon petition can be used to obtain relief from the debilitating effects of a criminal conviction even if the offense does not qualify for an expungement. If granted this does not seal records from public view (that power is reserved for the Court and not the Governor), however, a full and unconditional pardon may be used as a grounds for expungement in some cases. Xpunge Me! can help you by filing your petition on your behalf. An offense may be fully and unconditionally pardoned or partially reduced, or not fully and conditionally pardoned (clemency).
The source of the Governor’s power is the Maryland State Constitution. Many of the rules are found in the Maryland code, particularly Md. CORRECTIONAL SERVICES Code Ann. § 7-601 – 603.
