Unhappy Anyone know about petitions for a pardon from their state governor?

Hi, I'm doing research for my brother. He asked me to find out about how to request a pardon from the governor if things don't go his way with the parole board. We're in Virginia, and I've found out all that we need to do, paperwork - wise, but I thought I'd ask out there if anyone has had any experience with pardons.

The parole board just sent his Not Grant, and they didn't even respond to the reason he's locked up - just the same old severity of the crime, etc. But this was supposed to be a violation hearing/board review. The decision reads like a decision on regular parole.

There seems to have been successful petitions in Virginia, anyone know or care to share?

If it's like WA then it helps to have as many people as possible speaking up for him and to have really "extraordinary" facts in the case. Heard about this from someone who succeeded after more than one try.
