In 1971, Donald Blank was charged with the sale of a dangerous drug and, afterward, sentenced to 18 months of probation and a stayed 18-month jail term. Now 58 years old, he will appear before the State's seven-member Governor’s Pardon Advisory Board. Blank's witty clemency application says, among other things: "I do not necessarily feel I deserve to be pardoned in any way, but the law provides it in some instances, so I am applying."
