The exceptions are a pardon or expungement granted by the governor of the state in which the person received the felony conviction or the President if it is a federal conviction.

Such acts are taken in relation to wrongful conviction.

For example, the person being cleared in a retrial or by evidence such as DNA being presented that proves the person inoccent of the crime for which he or she was convicted.
