  1. In 2008, as part of a plea agreement, I plead guilty to felony possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, and felony possession of drug paraphernalia. Got probation and a fine. Then in 2015,in a freak accident, I broke my neck and had subsequent spinal cord damage. I am a C6 incomplete Quadriplegic Paralyzed from the chest down. Have most of my arm movement, but extremely limited in hand function . I have several secondary health issues related to my SCI. Since the injury, I have had to deal with all kinds of bureaucratic problems involving Medicaid, Social Security, DHS, Arkansas Rehabilitation Services, and other state agencies. While a lot of people have difficulties in dealing with these social services, I on the other hand have a good understanding in navigating the bureaucracy because I was a political science and public administration major in college and was about 30hrs short of a bachelor's degree when I was arrested and forced to quit school to resolve my Legal problems and find employment. Fast forward to today, and I will finally be able to go back to school. I am considering g two possible career options, either going into being a social worker or going to law school to become a disability rights attorney. Here is my problem, both careers require either state licensing or passing the state Bar exam. Because I am a felon, I can get neither of these state licenses.The only way I can get my felonies expunged is by applying for a Pardon from the Governor. I have researched the process and downloaded the application and believe I can obtain all the necessary documents it requires. My question is what is the odds that the Pardon would be granted. Has anyone here either received a pardon or represented someone granted a pardon. If anyone knows what is the ratio of pardons requested versus pardons granted. Anyone with advice on how to increase my chances because it would require a lot of work to not have any chance at all to be granted
