#Pardon My Swag2.0

23 Signatures Goal: 21,000

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 non-violent offenses such as, possession, or distribution 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 (s 5-602 "Controlled Dangerous Substance") violation 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") violation which, is a non-violent crime from seeking executive clemency, regaining civil rights and even increase the rate of recidivism.

President Obama made Christmas-time commutations of 95 federal prisoners Friday Dec 18,2015. Most of the commutations dealt with drug offenses, though the pardons involved counterfeiting and bank fraud. Obama has now commuted the prison sentences of 184 people, surpassing the combined number of those granted by presidents Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, and George W. Bush (117), the White House said in a statement. On the contrary', States Governors what are you waiting for?
