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.
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.
