NEW LAWS GOVERNING RESTORATION OF CIVIL RIGHTS
Effective March 9, 2011, there is a new process governing the restoration of civil rights for felons and new time frames that must be honored prior to submitting an application to the Clemency Board. Restoration of Civil Rights without a hearing is for less serious offenses and requires that the applicant be crime and arrest free for 5 years prior to review and application. Restoration with a hearing is for more serious offenses and requires 7 years to pass since the date of completion of all sentences and conditions of supervision imposed for all felony convictions.
