Certainly, if a person who has committed a crime has satisfied society's
requirements as far as punishment and restitution, and the person has also
satisfied any Church imposed punishments, s/he can be restored to full

to be.  There may be some special requirements for special positions (such
as Paul referenced below, and which I will check out next week when the
temple presidency returns), but as far as I know, forgiveness means
