In Mississippi, public notice is a constitutional requirement for acts of clemency, which include pardons, or acts of forgiveness after the completion of a sentence, and commutations, or shortened prison sentences. The public notice allows time for victims to comment on a potential pardon or early prison release before it takes effect.
