CRAWFORDVILLE, FL (#WTXLDigital) - A Crawfordville woman will receive a full pardon from a felony committed in 1994 if she is able to go a year without traffic violations or arrests.

According to Kimberly Randall's testimony to the Florida Executive Board, in 1994 she was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon after she took a gun from a friend while out at a club.

When police arrived at the scene, she says they found the gun in her waistband and subsequently arrested her.

The Florida Executive Board met Wednesday and spoke with Randall about the arrest and where her life has gone since.

Randall told the board that she raised 4 children who she has sent off to college in addition to her own graduation from Florida State.

She is attempting to start a security company with her husband but was unable to move forward because of the arrest.

Because of concerns about several worthless checks she had written as well as numerous speeding and red light tickets, the board decided to grant her a pardon in a year if she doesn't have traffic violations or arrests during that time.
