Hello,

Unfortunately, the right to sit on a jury is lost upon a felony conviction. It doesn't matter how much time has passed, unless those civil rights are restored, the loss of the right is permanent. The only way to try to restore said civil rights, such as the right to serve on a jury, would be to petition for a Governor's Pardon.

Applicants for a traditional pardon can either obtain the current forms necessary to apply via the Governor’s Office website, http://www.gov.ca.gov, or may write in to the following address: Governor's Office State Capitol Attention: Legal Affairs Secretary Sacramento, CA 95814 The applicant should complete the Application for Clemency and return it to the Governor's Office. In addition, an applicant must send Notice of Intention to Apply for a Traditional Pardon to the District Attorney of each county in which the applicant was convicted of a felony.

For me to get a pardon from the governor what kind of legal paper so I need.
Lawyer: RobertJDFL, Attorney replied 11 months ago

None, actually. The application for clemency you can get here. It just needs to be filled out and submitted to the District Attorney's Office before it is submitted to the Governor's office. The instructions are pretty straightforward and on the application itself.

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.
