    Uh, that’s how a pardon should work. It is rather idiotic for law enforcement and a state judge to think otherwise. Moreover it is unfortunate that this case took so long to resolve by making it to the Georgia supreme court. Thankfully the court made the logical conclusion and moving forward hopefully no one else who is granted a pardon by the parole board or any other entities with pardon granting power will face the same issues.

      IIRC, LA doesn’t accept a pardon as a way off its ML. Unless things have changed, nothing short of exoneration will do so. Meanwhile next door in MS, expungement, even if it occurs after being on MS’s ML, suffices to end/avoid registration. Their SC even said so a couple years back.

        What about those lifetime registry states you can check in but never check out, e.g. FLA/NY? You’d think a pardon would be helpful.

        • AJ

          I have never done an in-depth reading of NY or FL RC laws, so I don’t know if they allow pardons as a way out or not. In truth, I’d need to go back to check on LA, but a year or so back recall being stunned they were what seemed to be the most restrictive in this area.

    So …… we can all apply for these pardons? (And he did only 2 years on a 10-year sentence?? WTF??) My conviction was in Florida for a much less serious crime, but even if I was Mother Teresa, Ghandi, and MLK rolled into one, that State would never grant such a pardon. (Or is it simply a matter of a large campaign contribution to the right politician?)

    How do you request a pardon to be removed from sex offender list after your prison time has been served?
