Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The only thing you can do is the pardon application. If you never received any response when you submitted the application, you need to contact the office of pardons and parole and find out what the status is of your application. You cannot submit a new application until you know the status of the previous one. If the previous one was denied, then you would need to submit a new application with some more community leader letters of recommendation to try to give more support to your request that the pardon should be granted.
This is the only way to get relief from disabilities of your conviction.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
