The justice system is constantly in flux, and it is the duty of the judiciary, attorneys, and other decision-makers to constantly fight for what is right. This can be seen in adoption cases where a same-sex couple is wrongfully denied based on their preferences, instances where a person has been tried incorrectly or unjustly, and literally any and all situations in-between. Our United States Constitution contains a number of codified rights that attempt to help justice persevere, but sometimes it is much easier said than done. In today’s blog, your Milford, CT attorneys take a look at the federal pardons process and how we can help represent you in submitting your request.
Can be Submitted Prior to Start of the Case
The major purpose of the justice system is to uphold just that: justice. This means ensuring that law-abiding citizens are protected and that offenders are held to punishments equaling the level of the crime they commit, nothing more and nothing less. Unfortunately, there are few instances where this is one-hundred percent reflected in everyday life, and as such, we must take strides to hold the system and the players involved accountable.
One such way we can ensure justice is served is through the pardons process. Essentially, a pardon is the government’s decision to allow a person to be relieved of some or all of his or her legal consequences that have resulted from a criminal conviction. Further, it can be granted before or after the conviction is set in stone, and there is a process to be followed to ensure it is done correctly. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.
Granted by the President
Pardons can be granted for a number of reasons, including false convictions or if a person’s debt to society has been viewed as repaid. During the pardons process, a petition for pardoning a federal conviction is submitted to the Office of the Pardon Attorney. Further, the president of the United States is the one who will grant or deny a pardon after the Pardon Attorney grants review and forwards the information. To learn more about this process and what it may mean for your case, contact our office.
