PLEASE NOTE:

 

Length of Process:

 

The Nebraska Board of Pardons process can be lengthy.The evaluation of a pardon application may take several months to several years from start to finish.

 

A pardon application submitted under one Pardons Board Administration, but not decided under that administration, need not be resubmitted.No matter of the Pardons Board Administration, an application will remain under consideration until final action is taken by the Pardons Board Members in Office at that time.

 

The Nebraska Pardons Board can accept or deny an application or requested offense for any reason or no reason at all.

 

Waiting Period Required:

 

A pardon is an act of mercy and is a gift from supreme authority.The Nebraska Board of Pardons has the free discretion to grant or deny a pardon of any lawfully imposed sentence for any reason or no reason at all.A decision to pardon an individual from a crime generally depends on purely subjective evaluations and a prediction of future behavior by those entrusted with the decision and warrants a waiting period from the conviction of the individualís last crime to establish a pattern of behavior.Ordinarily, clemency may be considered when the applicant has accepted responsibility for the crime and has established good conduct for a significant period after the completion of their last criminal sentence.A Pardon does not signify innocence.

 

Felony Convictions:A person is not eligible to apply for a pardon on a Felony Conviction until a minimum of ten (10) years has elapsed since the completion from any form of sentence imposed upon him as part of a

sentence for his most recent criminal conviction, whether or not that is the conviction(s) for which he is seeking a Pardon.

 

Misdemeanor Convictions:A person is not eligible to apply for a pardon on a Misdemeanor Conviction until a minimum three (3) years has elapsed since the completion from any form of sentence imposed upon him as part of a sentence for his most recent criminal conviction, whether or not that is the conviction(s) for which he is seeking a Pardon.

 

The Nebraska Board of Pardons, at their discretion, can impose any length of time to the general waiting period.

 

Submitting an Application:

 

Please keep copies of your Pardons Board application, court documents, character reference letters, and any other materials submitted for your personal records.If requests are made for copies of any submitted materials a fee of $1.00 per page will be assessed.
