If you have done the time behind bars in the Oklahoma prison system and are looking for a new lease on life, then speaking with a Tahlequah Pardon Attorney may be something to consider. It’s important to note from the start that if your criminal case has not been adjudicated by a court of law and you’ve not been found guilty, then you can’t be pardoned.
In Oklahoma, if you have finished your sentence (including probation) for a felony or misdemeanor, the law allows you to petition the Governor of the state for a pardon. It is a complex process that requires a knowledgable guide through the process. The legal team at Wirth Law Office – Tahlequah can help you with your questions about your case.
What Does A Pardon Get You?
In Oklahoma, a pardon does not fully clean up your criminal record, that would be an expungement. A pardon instead shows others that you are ready to rejoin the community as a responsible member of society after your sentence. An Oklahoma pardon would allow someone to regain the right to vote in elections, help with trying to get a job and even the ability to qualify to hold public office. It’s important to note, as well, that an Oklahoma pardon could restore your right to own a gun or even start up a certain business that requires items like a liquor license.
