The website for the Board of Clemency only mentions the pardon being applicable to felonies. Am I to contact them anyways?
Also, where do 'failure to appear' misdemeanors fall, as far as eligibility for dismissal/expungement?
I do intend on accepting but have to first confirm the validity of your answer and that it will lead in the direction that I need to go, even if that's knowing that there's nothing that can be done.
Acceptance of your answer is not contigent upon getting the charges pardoned; I just need to contact the Boad of Clemency and ensure that I am barking up the right tree.
