Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I suggest you will need to contact the Governor's office and they can provide you information on how to reach the state Archives where those documents are surely stored.However, keep in mind that a Pardon does not mean you can have your Second Amendment Rights. Because of federal law, once you get the pardon, you then must Petition the court to have the court records expunged and any arrest records sealed.It is a two step process. The pardon only made you eligible to petition for the expungment.I suggest you can check with the clerk of the court and ask if they have record of your Pardon. And if yes, then request the forms to Petition for expungment of your records.
A pardon does not restrict, erase, or seal the charge from your criminal history. You will receive a certificate of rehabilitation, and it will be noted on your official Georgia criminal history record. So the clerk should have a record of it.
And I said contact the Governor's office. But that is incorrect. Your pardon came from the State Board of Pardons & Paroles
So you can contact them. But I assure you the reason your gun rights were denied is because the matter was never expunged and all arrest records sealed.
