According to the North Carolina Constitution, the “Governor may grant reprieves, commutations, and pardons, after conviction, for all offenses (except in cases of impeachment), upon such conditions as he may think proper.”

There are three types of Pardons that the Governor normally issues in North Carolina:

  1. Pardon of Forgiveness: This Pardon is the one most frequently requested. This Pardon is issued stating that the individual has been pardoned and forgiven of their criminal conviction. This Pardon is granted with certain conditions.
  2. Pardon of Innocence: Pardon granted when an individual has been convicted and the criminal charges are subsequently dismissed. Application for this type of Pardon allows an individual to petition the Governor for a declaration of innocence when the individual has been erroneously convicted and imprisoned and later determined to be innocent. In such cases where this Pardon is granted, an individual is allowed to seek compensation from the State. Please refer to N.C.G.S. § 148-82, regarding Provision for Compensation and N.C.G.S. § 148-84, regarding Evidence; Action by Industrial Commission; Payment and Amount of Compensation.
  3. Unconditional Pardon: Pardon granted primarily to restore an individual’s right to own or possess a firearm. This Pardon is granted without any conditions or restrictions. 3
