Governor Pat Quinn Takes Clemency Action

CHICAGO – Governor Pat Quinn today granted 38 and denied 86 clemency petitions. After inheriting more than 2,500 cases that built up during the previous administration, the Governor continues to make significant progress acting on clemencies.

The 124 clemency petitions acted upon today by Governor Quinn are part of dockets dating back to 2006. Each person granted clemency has recently undergone a criminal background check through the Illinois State Police’s Law Enforcement Agencies Data System (LEADS).

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

Since taking office, Governor Quinn has acted on 3,047 clemency petitions. Governor Quinn has granted 1,113 and denied 1,934 petitions.

For additional information on the granted clemency cases, please contact Ken Tupy at the Prisoner Review Board at (217) 782-1610(217) 782-1610 or ken.tupy@illinois.gov.
