#Pardon My Swag20
Under the constitution, the President has the authority to grant pardon for federal offenses, including those adjudicated in the "United States District Courts", the "Superior Court of the District Of Columbia", and "Military Courts- Martial".
The President cannot pardon a state criminal offense such as, a drug offense etc. Instead, applicants seeking clemency for a state criminal conviction require what is known as a "Governor's Pardon" from the governor of the state.
Interesting enough', the rules governing applicant's with federal convictions states, "Applicant's must satisfy a minimum waiting period of (5) year's before he/she becomes eligible to apply for a "Presidential Pardon" for a federal conviction".
On the other hand', the rules governing applicant's with Maryland state criminal offenses who require a state "Governor's Pardon" for an expungement states, "Applicant's convicted of drug offenses such as, "CDS" (Controlled Dangerous Substance) possession/ non-violent crimes are required to wait a period of (20) year's before he/she becomes eligible to even apply for a "Governor's Pardon" for a first time offense.
I (______________) hereby exercise the right to petition to amply reduce and vindicate applicant's convicted of criminal law code (s5-602 Controlled Dangerous Substance) non-violent crime violations from the post probation, (20) year waiting period which also applies to first time offenders from becoming eligible for a "Governor's Pardon".
I (_______________) also believe (20) year's will further hinder offenders convicted of criminal law code(s 5-602 "Controlled Dangerous Substance") violations/ non-violent crimes from seeking executive clemency and regaining their civil rights, as United States citizen's.
