How does Sirius Black's name get cleared after his death?

How does Sirius Black's name get cleared after his death?

I am sure it says in the book but i don't feel like going back and reading it right now. He is killed at the Ministry just before the Minister discovers that Voldemort is alive, but in the next book it is said that his name is cleared. How was his name cleared?

I think they just realized "Oh crap, he's back, and his buddies killed Black," and with that, they could infer that Black was NOT a Death Eater at any point. And I think they somehow proved that Pettigrew was alive later.
