If an applicant for a pardon extraordinary has been convicted of only one crime which is a felony classified as a level IV or less severe crime under the Sentencing Guidelines Commission standard, the applicant has been discharged for at least five years, and the applicant has no negative comments to the request for relief, then the secretary may inform the applicant that the applicant has the option of not appearing at the hearing. On being informed of the option of not appearing at the hearing, the applicant shall also be told that if at the hearing the members of the board feel the applicant's presence is necessary, then action on the application will be delayed for approximately 90 days until the next meeting of the board.
