Illinois State Govenor, Pat Quinn: Grant of Executive Clemency to Harriet Bianca Shivley (Johnson)

In 1999, I committed a crime.  I was sentenced to two years probation.  Our society brands the felon for the rest of his or her lifetime. Essentially, once a felon, always a felon. This is wrong. This is not forgiveness. A lifetime punishment is harmful to society as a whole. This is not mercy. A pardon gives the deserving person an opportunity to remove the felon branding. I made a huge mistake.  I have learned an invaluable lesson which is evident in the life of integrity that I currently live.  I am requesting your support in my petition to the Illinois Govenor for a  pardon.  I would like a second chance.   

Thank you.
