Governor Takes Clemency Action
CHICAGO – Governor Bruce Rauner today granted six and denied 150 clemency petitions and also granted one commutation. About 500 petitions remain from previous administrations.

The 157 clemency petitions Governor Rauner acted upon today are part of dockets dating back to January 2012. This is the tenth set of petitions the governor has reviewed since taking office. Each person granted clemency has recently undergone a criminal background check through the Illinois State Police’s Law Enforcement Agencies Data System.

A granted clemency request for a pardon with expungement allows the petitioner to seek expungement of their conviction through the court system.

For additional information on the granted clemency cases, please contact the Prisoner Review Board at (217) 782-1610.
