MADISON, Wis. (WBAY) - Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers has granted nine more pardons to Wisconsin residents, including a Green Bay man.

The Governor’s Pardon Advisory Board heard from applicants on Aug. 18. Those recommended for pardon were forwarded to the governor.

A pardon is an official act of forgiveness, but not an expungement. It restores some of the person’s rights, including serving on a jury and professional licenses. The Governor’s Pardon Advisory Board meets each month.

Evers has pardoned 65 people since he took office in 2019. The previous governor, Scott Walker, issued no pardons during his eight years in office.
