A granted clemency request for a pardon with expungement allows the petitioner to seek expungement of their conviction through the court system.

This is the fifth set of petitions the governor has reviewed since taking office. The Governor’s Office has developed a process to review clemency petitions on a regular basis.

For additional information on the granted clemency cases, please contact Ken Tupy at the Prisoner Review Board at (217) 782-1610 or Ken.Tupy@illinois.gov.
