In Somerset County you have options with the Pardon Project.
|If you have ever pled guilty or been convicted of a state crime in Pennsylvania and have completed your sentence, you should consider applying for a pardon, which is total forgiveness that erases your record. You will never have to "check the box" again.
Pardon applications are free and easier to submit than ever. The Pardon Project of Somerset County helps non-violent ex-offenders (and their families) move their lives forward.
Pennsylvania is leading the nation in pardon reform. A lawyer is not required, and over 80% of the people going before the Board of Pardons actually receive a pardon. Over a ten-year period, pardons brought over $16.5 million in higher wages to Pennsylvania communities.
Who We Are
The Pardon Project of Somerset County was created by a steering committee that included public officials, government agencies, law enforcement, lawyers, and social workers.
What We Do
Trained volunteers ("Pardon Coaches") who know the process, understand factors the Board of Pardons considers, and help applicants submit the best possible pardon applications.
