May one be pardoned and retain th’offence?

Happens all the time, my man.
All. The. Time.
All of those bankers who got rich on the bubble that collapsed the world’s economies?
Are they on food stamps now? Nay.
There were a couple of cursory slaps on the wrist and some tiny fines – but essentially they said, “Oh, oops. We’re sorry.” Families lost their homes, people lost their jobs and the arts markets dried up like a salted fish in the sun. Doesn’t seem to be a problem for a lot of people to get a pardon and also get to keep the spoils of the crime.
