This answer was rated:

Do I apply for a pardon for bank embezzlement from the state it was done or do you have to go to the presidents pardon board

ScottyMacEsq :

Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.

ScottyMacEsq :

It depends on whether the conviction was based on state or Federal law.

ScottyMacEsq :

If your conviction was in the state courts, you would need to apply for a pardon from the state, which the governor would sign.

ScottyMacEsq :

If it was Federal, then the President would have that authority.

ScottyMacEsq :

The Presidnet has NO authority over state court convictions, as the governor would have no authority over Federal convictions.

ScottyMacEsq :

*President
