What You Should Know About Pardons In South Carolina
There is a difference between a pardon and an expungement of records. While Record Expungement wipes a conviction off your criminal record completely, a pardon does not. But as laws and other statutes change, there may be rights and options that you may not have considered available to you.
A pardon is a grant by the state excusing a person convicted of a crime from its legal penalties, but the original conviction remains on a criminal record so that a person must still acknowledge their conviction. For instance, a pardon does not remove sex offender status.
However, there are some very important civil rights that a Pardon restores to the person convicted of a crime. These include the right to vote, and the right to hold most public offices. It also includes the right to serve on a jury, to resume a licensed profession, and gun rights. You’ll also have the right to testify in court without having evidence from your conviction presented.
