California Penal Code 4852 PC Pardon procedures

July 2, 2021 California Penal Code

The California statute that lays out the process for obtaining a certificate of rehabilitation and a pardon is Penal Code 4852 PC. Certificates of rehabilitation (COR) can serve to improve employment prospects. A pardon restores civil rights and even potentailly firearm rights.

Obtaining a COR serves as an automatic application for a pardon. Depending on the circumstances of the case, pardons have the power to:

  • Restore a person’s gun rights
  • Eliminate a person’s sex offender registration requirements
  • Restore the person’s right to serve on a jury;
  • Restore the person’s opportunity to get a job as a county probation officer or state parole officer
  • Relieve the individual from being impeached in court based on the conviction
  • Function as a bar to deportation for legal immigrants

We strongly advised you to contact the California criminal defense attorneys at Spodek Law Group to handle your COR application and hearing.
