The Wisconsin Rapids Tribune is reporting on the case of Ronald D. Mehlbrech who is seeking a pardon for a crime that he committed 25 years ago. Mehlbrech served year in jail and six years of probation for being a party to an armed robbery of gas station. But he has been "clean" ever since. The article suggests the pardon process in Wisconsin takes about one and half year to complete. It also notes that there were 95 applications in 2008 and only 15 pardons granted. See story here.
