Instructions and application materials

Executive Clemency is an extraordinary method of relief and is not regarded as a substitute for parole.  An offender who believes that he/she has a deserving case for executive clemency may submit an application to the Prisoner Review Board, following the outlined procedure and policy.  Following a thorough case review and possibly an interview, the Prisoner Review Board will submit a recommendation to the Pardon Attorney in the Governor's office for the Governor's final action.

  • If an attorney is retained for clemency purposes, the attorney must submit the Attorney Affidavit called for in K.S.A. 22-3706.
  • When complete, send all documents to the Prisoner Review Board at:

Kansas Department of Corrections
ATTN: Prisoner Review Board
714 SW Jackson, Suite 300
Topeka, Kansas 66603 

  • The Prisoner Review Board will examine all pertinent records, reports and other available information. Should a personal interview with the applicant be required, the Board will notify the applicant. Upon full review, the Board will submit a report along with all information received to the Governor. The applicant will be notified when the Governor renders a decision via letter.
