Governor Brown Grants Executive Clemency

Sacramento, CA...Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced that he has granted 132 pardons and 19 commutations. Individuals who have been convicted of a crime in California may apply to the Governor for a pardon. Those granted pardons all completed their sentences and the majority were convicted of drug-related or other nonviolent crimes. Pardons are not granted unless they are earned.




A gubernatorial pardon may be granted to individuals who have demonstrated exemplary behavior and have lived productive and law-abiding lives following their conviction. The process includes eligible individuals obtaining a Certificate of Rehabilitation, which is an order from a superior court declaring that a person convicted of a crime is now rehabilitated. This requirement was waived for a refugee who is currently detained as part of a federal immigration proceeding.

When a pardon is granted, the California Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are notified so that they may update their records on the applicant. The pardon is filed with the Secretary of State and the Legislature, and it is a public record.

The Governor also granted 19 commutations to current inmates. Inmates currently serving a sentence for a conviction by the California Courts can petition to have their sentence reduced by applying for a commutation. In the majority of these commutations, these individuals have been granted the opportunity to make their case before the Board of Parole Hearings, which will determine whether they are ready to be released from prison.

Copies of the gubernatorial pardons and commutations can be found here. Additional information on pardons and commutations can be found here.

strong enough to give a pardon but not strong enough to stand against government funded abortion/murder.

My understanding is that Jerry will pardon the dude with the clown face tattooed on his ass because the clown is his long lost son, Rudy! How fitting!

who only cares for the city slickers, and illegals.

"A gubernatorial pardon is an honor that may be granted to people who have demonstrated exemplary behavior following their conviction. A pardon will not be granted unless it has been earned. Historically, governors have granted very few pardons"
NOT our Governor.

" exemplary behavior following their conviction"
Wow, does that means they were model prisoners, behind bars?
I'll bet a little money those pardoned will be selling drugs or robbing someone within a months time.

    My mistake, some of these I read were released from prison already, so are they seeking to have their convictions wiped clean?

Read the Descriptions

Read the pardons. Most of these individuals committed minor crimes: participated in the theft of a lamp from a vacant home, stole a wallet, possessed marijuana, provided a minor with a controlled substance (could have been a glass of wine for all we know), bought a stolen car for $450, threatening a gang member.

Some could have caused real damage though: participated in the armed robbery of a gas station.

Most did little jail time, extended probation time, and completed their 'sentence' over 10 years ago. Most recent date I read was 2005.

If they have turned themselves around, who are we to slap their other cheek and say 'you are not worthy'? I'm for giving people a second chance if they have earned it. Youth make stupid decisions. If they ultimately become contributing, responsible adults, why not give them this reward? They have earned it.
