What is a pardon? Where do I get information from for a pardon?
A pardon is a grant by the state that excuses a person convicted of a crime from its legal consequences. It does not erase a conviction, it just ends the penalty. For more information contact the South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole and Pardon Services at http://www.dppps.sc.gov/. OUR OFFICE DOES NOT PROCESS PARDONS.
