Abstract: Under the Ohio Constitution, the Governor has the authority to make decisions about executive clemency. This paper is a historical review of the nature of executive clemency, and the frequency of its use in the twentieth century. The use of clemency is put into historical perspective and factors associated with changes in its use are examined.
