Clemency & Pardons Board
The Clemency and Pardons Board receives petitions from individuals, organizations and the Department of Corrections for commutation of sentences and pardoning of offenders and, in some instances, for the restoration of the right to engage in political office.
Based on its review, the Board makes recommendations to the Governor. See statutory authority - RCW 9.94A.885
