Can a 29-year-old father who was convicted of a felony when he was a 20-year-old gain custody of his children in Ohio?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nIf you have a good lawyer and proof that your the safer, more stable parent, then maybe. It would also depend on your conviction. If you are a predator of any sort then forget it. Consult a lawyer in your area. A lot of lawyers give free consultations.\n. \n . \n M…aybe. \n. \nBut it is unlikely for full custody to be granted to any parent regardless of their background, unless one of them has a documented history of abuse or neglect and/or serious criminal offenses (rape, armed criminal action, etc.).\n. \nThe main concern of the court is what is best for the child/children and nothing else.\n. \nTherefore a parent is usually required to submit a parenting plan to the court, along with substantiated evidence of economic and emotional stability.

I don't see why not. If you have a criminal record one option is to run your own business. If you want to go limited, it just means you pay the extra taxes to be recognizing your firm as an "individual" so to speak. double check, but I seriously doubt it would hinder you in any way. cheers. Mi.
Are there any companies in Minnesota that hire people with felonies I need names of companies please?
Amicus - Reconnect . In short, yes. There is a organization called Amicus that runs a program called Reconnect which specializes in providing all the resources necessary for convicted felons to find employment and other services including housing. They have a constantly updated list of felon fr…iendly employers that are currently seeking employees. The program's coordinator's name is Ruth Johnson, and the phone number to reach her is 612-348-8570. (MORE)
Generally, a felony conviction is one for which you can receive in excess of one year imprisonment. A Felony is a serious crime in the United states and other common law areas, So being convicted of a felony is a just being accused of a crime.
The answer is no. Once you check that box "Ever been convicted of a felony" yes, you might as well just tear it up. I have a felony from over ten years ago...recently I had worked for local retailer...and they liked my work so much they paid for management training and I was due to run my own store …in a few weeks, but since I had marked no on my "felony" question (just so I could get in the door to put food on the table).So right before promotion time I told them about it, and only a month after that they decided to fire me for not telling them about the felony when I first applied. Despite how wonderful they thought my performance was, despite that I had proven I could be trusted with bank deposits, crew mgmt ..running their stores...they said policy was policy. According to them, Had I told them up front about the felony everything would have been ok...bs! So if you don't confess the felony upfront you will be fired, if you tell them about it up front you wont be hired...so what do you do? So I tried to do the right thing, I was up front with every application, yes I have a felony...10 years ago blah blah and after 60 applications and 40 interviews in Columbus Ohio and surrounding areas...nothing! Every interview is the same, they look nervous and cant wait to get you out the door. Always with the excuse "its policy" . The Government is the worst to try to get a job, not only will they not hire you, they will not cover companies with bond that do (example insurance sales..United Insurance Group...even though I would pay for my own training and license and work as an independent contractor..they cant hire me because some of the insurance they sell is Government based.. So..Here I sit as the bills continue to pile up and wonder what im supposed to do next...Yes I made a mistake..a stupid young kid mistake...fine, I paid for it with time and restitution...I PAID MY DEBT, and yet I still am being punished. I don't want pity I just want a job..that simple. So what am I supposed to do? How did I get Rehabilitated? Im worse off now then ever! Heck Im screwed really, I won't go sell drugs or anything else stupid because I don't want that kind of life, I really don't. However I really understand why people go back to that...sure its wrong but if you need food and nobody will give you a job...? I just want to work. Its funny how people say how they want crime and such to go down, but then when people get out and are ready to prove they can be productive in society..they get nothing but sterotypical responses. Columbus Ohio, is not a convicted felony friendly city, nor are most nowadays..regardless of their claims, once you get out of prison, you are on your own, and you have to survive somehow...question is how? One thing to note is, the prison population continues to skyrocket..its crazy and out of control, the cost is outrageous to house an inmate and due to state funds being cut, guess what? alot of these people are being released...what good is prison rehabilition if you never get the chance to prove it? All I can say is they need help, and if cities like Columbus Ohio don't help their own citizens get jobs then they will do what they have to do to survive, I have seen some of these guys and you don't want them running around in your neighborhood pissed off with no job. Its a stupid system and makes no sense to me. Once you are convicted of just one felony, you have really limited your options for future employement in anywhere, especially Cowardlumbus. (MORE)

There are many companies that do not hire a person if they have afelony conviction. However, there are companies that will hire afelon. A person has to apply for jobs until they find a companythat will hire them.
The previous answer is inaccurate and misguiding. A felon is not allowed to own or posses a firearm under the 1968 gun control act; however, under the provisions of this law, a weapon that was manufactured on or before 1898 or a reproduction of this weapon, as long as it does not chamber a centerfir…e or rimfire cartridge (aka blackpowder) is not classified as a "firearm" and can be legally obtained by a person covicted of a felony. There are many state and local laws concerening this also, so check into it extensively before you obtain the weapon. (MORE)

More information is needed to answer this question. \n. \nFor example, is the person on probation or parole, and have these agencies put conditions on the person's travel? Where will the person be traveling? Many countries will decline to allow people to enter their countries depending on the ty…pe of conviction. \n. \nIf the person is on probation or parole, start by asking that agency. If the person wants to travel abroad, call the local office of the country for advice. However, the people who work the border and airport entrances for the foreign country often make their own decisions. (MORE)
This would largely depend on the department that you are seeking employment with as different departments in different states, and even in the same state may have vastly different policies concerning employment of individuals with past felony convictions. Your best source of information would be the… department that you are interested in working with as most are government organizations and as such will have publicly available information about any job that they may have available.

In most places, no. Many volunteer stations do not allow this either. However, you never know about the station you would be interested in joining or applying for until you ask. Just call an officer of the station if you can or even ask a member of the station if you know any.
I don't have an answer. Can u tell me . The only way i see an ex felon becoming a true productive citizen, is to remember what it took for them to survive in prison. NETWORKING. Unfortunately gangs are prevalant in every prison in the world. they survive because of their ability to function as one, …although the gang may have 100-200 members. they survive because they have a common goal, to be better or more comfortable than the other inmates. if these same individuals would take the same stance in society, speaking here ONLY of the UNITY these members share, maybe they could be the ones to HIRE ex felons.

How would you write a statement about a old felony conviction for an employer who wants to hire you but you don't know were to start?
It depends on the purpose for this statement and whether you could bear any legal risks in writing this "statement". You might want to consult your lawyer FIRST, before putting anything in writing. In fact, I'm not sure your prospective employer has any right to even ask you to write such a stateme…nt. Ask your attorney or parole officer, just to be sure. IF you decide to go ahead and write it, ask the prospective employer what he/she wants you to include. Offer no other information. Do not add in a bunch of details; it really is not anyone's business after you served your sentence. Keep it short, simple. Dear Mr. (last name), On (date), I was convicted of (the name of the legal charge - you do not need to list the "degree" of the charge). I was sentenced to (number) years / months. I have completed my sentence and all tasks I was required to do as part of my sentencing and release. Thank you for considering me for employment, (Signed your full legal name) (MORE)
Hey felons...I know it is hard to find a job, being a felon and all. The one thing you have to have is determination and focus. Factories are a rudimentary source of income whose labor is targeted to the poor and nonskilled within the communities. If you want to obtain skill, you have to go to col…lege or some sort of technical school. Financial aid is available to almost everyone that applies for it. The first place you should look is FAFSA; which stands for the Free Application For Federal Student Aid. You apply for student, then you apply to a college. It's that simple. Realize that college is hard work, and it may take anywhere from a few months (for a certification) to a few years (for a bachelors degree) to complete. Be Patient!!!! I have been going to college for almost 7 years; 3 of those years were through Hocking College in the prison system. Yes....your prison college credits apply to most 4 year schools. If you go to school, study for the classes that you registered for; Don't slack off. You are the one that ultamately pays for your education, so stay away from drinking and using drugs. Famous stupid quote, "But I still can function while using alcahol." No You Can't!!!!! In all probability, drugs and alcahol, combined with hanging out with like minded people led you to prison; that's what led me to prison. So I stopped drinking and using drugs. On the topic of finding a job. You need to be confident that you will receive that job. You need to continually follow up on that application ("I'll wait until they call me"); That's Laziness...stop it!!!! Get off the drugs!!!! You need to dress professionally; dress slacks, dress shirt, etc.. O.K....for the gentlemen that don't have the gift of gab; Pick up a book and read it every now and then...not a magazine...not an XXL, A BOOK. This will help with your rhetoric (look up words you don't know in the dictionary). All these tactics will get you closer to employment. Remember ... Looking for a job is a Full-time job . Don't forget the previous statement. It is a 40 hour a week, full-time job. If you want a good job, you will follow what I told you, or else you will be working at a plastics factory hating life. Oh...and smile ;-) No employer wants to hire someone that mean mugs them all the time. I know, I know...sometimes you can't help but to mean mug... Get over it and smile :-) I usually spend time in my car blasting Lil John, mean mugging, but I won't do it at work. Disregard the sentence about me mean mugging in the car, I was trying to be funny. Well...if I can get a job, you can get a job. I have a felony 1, and I still get jobs. No excuses!!!! Good luck, and good utilization of your job acquiring skills. (MORE)
If you truly are an ex-felon, then the conviction was overturned, and you're no longer a felon. Thus, you should be eligible for any trucking company, provided you meet their employment criteria. If this is not your case, then you're an ex-con, but remain a felon. Carolina Cargo is probably the comp…any you would like to check first. (MORE)
If they spell it right out front like that, then yes they have every right not to hire a convicted felon.

You were convicted of sexual misconduct a misderminor but two jobs that asked about felonys didnt hire you is that legal?
It's not "legal" if the reason they didn't hire you was because of the misdemeanor. Unfortunately, they aren't going to tell you this is the reason you weren't hired, because that's not legal grounds for not hiring.
Some jobs are restricted in Florida for convicted felons until civil rights may be restored.

Hiring policies are determined by individual companies. No employerspecifically advertises that they will hire a convicted felon. Youwill need to apply and ask them.
To request the expungement of an offense from your STATE (not Federal) criminal record: You must have either been exonerated, acquited, or served the complete term of your sentence - then file a petition/motion with the court setting forth valid reason(s) why your request should be granted. A judge …will review your petition and the circumstances of your case and issue a ruling either granting or denying the request. AN EXPUNGEMENT IS NOT A PARDON! Expungement only removes the record of your offense from being available to the public. Law enforcement, the courts, and government agencies will always have access to your actual 'true' record.. FELONS CONVICTED IN STATE COURT OF STATE CRIMES : If your request for expungement is granted and you are a resident of a state which completely or partially restores your "rights" (you will have to do your own esearch to learn if this applies to your state) , you will still remain subject to whatever restrictions your state laws place on you (e.g.- voting rights - elective office - firearms/ammunition possession - etc).. FEDERALLY CONVICTED FELONS - CAUTION: Regardless of what rights your state may restore, if you were convicted in FEDERAL COURT of a FEDERAL FELONY - it is a felony crime for a federally convicted felon to EVER own or possess a firearm. The U.S. Criminal Code, makes the penalty for illegal possession of a firearm a mandatory minimum of fifteen (15) years in prison in some cases (Title 18 U.S.C. sec 924(e)(1). At this time FEDERALLY convicted felons have no solution to their firearm disqualification. Congress has effectively eliminated the review of federally convicted felons' petitions for restoration of their firearms privileges, by denying funding for the purpose. (MORE)
Yes. But there are a few that disqualify you though. Call the board and talk to Howard Warner for more information. Ohio prisons offer barbering and cosmetology to male and female inmates.
Yes. They own and control their own private property and can bar entrance to anyone whom they do not wish to allow entrance to.
Here is an answer to a similar question from 'sdresh' who is a respected member of the wikianswers community (I have a brother who faces the same problem.); . "Where you're at: If you are still under a supervised release program, then following the direction and assistance given by a parole officer… is most prudent. At this stage, your primary goal is to complete your probation or parole, after which you may begin your new life. If you absolutely need cash, and cannot market your previous skills, then strongly consider a temp agency that will hire you out, and pay you, on a daily basis as a manual laborer. . If you are already past the supervised release stage, then it's time to rebuild. . Where you're not: Although it's disheartening, there are jobs you can't have pretty much without exception--exclude anything and everything that involves firearms, and explosives. Bonded positions, highly regulated and licensed positions, and most government jobs are off the prospective list as well. Positions working around minors are probably out too. . Where you can go: You will most likely find your new career home in a small to very small company, where you will work closely with the owner. Most small companies struggle to survive, and rely heavily on each employee they have. You will probably be working with or near the owner, because they are down working in the trenches to keep their company afloat on a daily basis. . Where you can't go: Most medium to large companies don't want to be involved with any real or perceived liability in hiring you. If this is the route you really want to pursue, than plan on adding a lot of positive factors to your resume between the time of your conviction and the time you apply. Do not lie on the application since you will be fired if they discover the lie. . What you can do: Unskilled and semi-skilled labor positions are high on a convicts new job list, as most employers need to keep these revolving door type jobs filled. Residential construction labor is a good starter job. You can build your skill level, increase your wages, and maybe find a long-term home with a contractor. . Assume you will have to discuss your conviction, and that a background investigation will be done. Employers want to know that you have moved-on from your experience. A simple statement is all that's needed. "I was convicted of -xxx- , and have fulfilled my obligations to the Court/Society/etc. I know that crime is wrong, and I also know that I have to try harder, and be better than the average person. I am ready to do this." (Don't go into a tirade about how life has done you wrong, or that you're a victim etc. The above statement is clear, concise, and should be accurate.) . What else can you do: You will now need to prove that you are in fact trying harder. . Education is a must: If you need a GED, get one. Enroll in Community College classes (education) and courses (skills). If you have a skill or specific education, consider teaching Adult Education classes. Use counselors to help develop a new career path. . Volunteer for Community Service. It looks good on a resume, it puts you in a networking position, it exposes you to potential employers, it keeps you away from an unsavory crowd, and it should make you feel better about yourself. Two full days (or the equivalent) per month is the norm. Use peer support to explore new career options. . Consider church. It has the same exposure as Volunteering, and can be a source of support for some. Use church leaders for career guidance and support. . Try to expunge your conviction, or apply for a Certificate of Rehabilitation (or the equivalent.) All felony convictions can be made to go away; Some are just harder than others (such as Federal convictions requiring a Pardon or Clemency, or Registrant Crimes which may require continued registration.) . Prevent future convictions. This is a no-brainer, but still needs to be said. . You have been given (a sort of) second chance. You have fairly permanent legal handicap. Try to earn what you need to live comfortably, but look for success outside of monetary achievement. This is all I can offer. Answer . Many communities have people who work as an Employment Specialist who have connections to employers and job positions that allow felonies/work release. A good place to register and check in with is your local Workforce office, or a city office that helps with employment. When you call, ask specifically about anyone who works directly with felons, people with backgrounds, or any other barrier you might face (language, Veteran status, etc.). Goodwill is also normally a good contact, or may be able to give you the name of someone who can help. Other places where I have had luck finding people employment (I am an Employment Specialist working with felons)are temp or temp-to-hire agencies that primarily hire for production and warehouse work. This day labor, while not your dream job, will provide money for survival while you find THE job. Answer - No one solution . Here, in Delaware, there are no community release people to talk to, nor will the parole officer try to assist you. In some ways this is for your benefit, as this motivates you to find alternate solutions. But when you have a number of restrictions that prevent you from doing normal job hunting (such as restricted to home, not able to drive, must have supervision, et al.) then things get complicated. . Here are some of the things I have learned: . 1. DO NOT APPLY WITH PLACEMENT AGENCIES! These people have no mercy with you. You will not bring them any money and as such do not want to deal with you. Some even trade information between themselves and say "this is a bad person". They are under no obligation to remove old data on you after a period of time. Save them for the far future after you get a few years of work under your belt. . 2. Apply direct. Use sites such as Careerbuilder.com and others to e-mail your resume to places where they are hiring. But be careful, many of these so call "We have a job open...." are really placement firms wanting to contract you out or sell you to the companies you normally would work for. Always check the name of the company and throw that into a search engine to see if you can get to their own site and avoid the middle man. . 2.a Apply to state and federal agencies. They have to hire you if you qualify. Your conviction should not count against you unless you are forbidden to work in a area that would violate law, or prevent you from getting a security clearance. (Hit the latter with one company myself) . 3. Check the local news papers online. Check the local papers and click the classified sections. Most will allow to you get to them for free, or you can read the paper at the library. Some say you have to pay to read the paper, but the classified section may be free. Check around. . 4. Check online state run job sites. Some like www.delawareonline.com actually uses careerbuilder.com for their engine. So it does not do you any good there. It is also noted that a number of states are using third party engines. If you use the state entry point that may get you into the engine better than trying to go into the job search site directly. . 5. Yellow Pages Baby! - get the names and addresses of companies that you think would have jobs like the one you do. Send letters to them. "Cold Call" is the term. However, if you are like me, you cannot afford a $41.00 for 100 stamps, plus paper, plus envelopes, plus $20 or $40 ink for your printer (times 3 to 5 depending on your printer)...plus...plus...plus... but it is a good method to get the information directly to the people. . 6. NETWORK! Get a hold of your pastor, friend, relative, anyone that could put in a good word for you. Even if you don't know someone, make a flyer and ask if you can put it up in church, or up in a place where you find other fliers. If you have the money, put a ad in the paper. . 7. TIME - You did time, now time is something that you have to face. The more jobs you apply for the more likely you will be to find one. Every Monday, try to find five good, likely jobs and apply. Then, keep looking. I hunt over 8 hours a day. I surf the job sites constantly. I visit company web sites and look for "Employment" or "Careers" at the bottom or top of the web pages (most are very small print with colors that are hard to find) and type my butt off in having to deal with all the variety and myriad ways of applying online. (Visit www.walmart.com and try their system - be sure to have a wrist brace and Motrin for when you are done...) . While you are doing all of these things, get your free credit report. Ex-Cons are the targets of identity theft. People figure you won't need your ID for a few years so.... Get the credit report and see what's there. You can be sure that most employers will run a background check on you these days. If you show up as someone else they may not hire you. . Banks will most certainly do one on you. When they see that your last address was prison, then they will be very reluctant to give you an account other than "restricted", or give you an ATM or Debit card. (but that's for another WIKI) . For second ID's get one from the library, or take one (1) class from a college in the area. (Can you say Pell Grants?) Answer . I have had this problem. I tried different ways to approach this: 1. I applied only with small businesses that are more open-minded and are willing to hire people despite past mistakes. 2. I became an Independent Contractor in the retail field. As such I was contracted out through various companies (most of which do not do a background check, and seem to not even care about your record as long as you can get the contracts done). There is a lot of money that can be made by someone willing to work, travel, or live in a metro area. 3. I am now involved in my family business, where everyone here knows, supports and doesn't care about my felonies. Answer . I to have seen this being a problem and going back to school was not the answer either. So I have started my own home base business it looks to me that may be the only answer for us that have made a mistake in our lives. I am beginning to think we need to ban together on this area of our lives. would like to offer what I am doing to others it would be great for all of us Answer . I am having the same problem. I was released in June and have hit road block after road block. I have talked to 4 temp agencies and none of them will work with felons. I have been on 16 interviews for jobs I was completely qualified for to then be turned down when the felony came up. . So now I have resorted to skipping the question and hoping that the background check comes out clean. My convictions are 9 years old now. I don't know if it will work but... Answer . It is very difficult, but with patience and persistence-it is possible. . I am having the same problem. I made a stupid mistake a few years ago and now have two Class 5 felony counts showing. Although I did not have to serve any time in jail(only probation) it is still hard. But not impossible. Answer . Starting your own business or working for a small business owner who is willing to take a risk are best. Many, many large companies won't hire someone with a felony. Answer . Good Luck. Your best bet is word of mouth or under the table. Even though by law the majority of businesses are not allowed to turn you away because you are an ex-con. They will. Obviously they aren't going to come right out and say that's why they didn't hire you, but it probably is. . Try going to a temp agency that hires day labor. Make sure you don't lie about your criminal background. Let them find a job for you. Answer . In Michigan, start with your local CAP agencies...(Community Action Program) They are non-profit and usually have an employment specialist to assist you in finding employment. . There is no straight forward answer to this question. You just have to keep looking and try real hard to find a job here in Florida! Even though a lot of places run background checks, not all of them actually do! . It may not provide the pay that an individual needs to survive, but there are entry level positions available in every state. Proving one's self is a part of the process. How can convicted felons get hired . The answer is to call employment temporary agencies that have a listing of some employers that do hire some convicted felons depending on their background relation to the felony charge. I wish everyone good luck in trying to contribute to society in a positive way and I pray that your search is a successful one. Answer . Sorry, there is not such a list available. . The decision would be that of a prospective employer and in accordance with the convicted felons terms of release or probation. Answer . General labor, unless you got some form of real education before becoming a felon or during your felony serving time. . I would look into construction, or maybe write a book about your life of crime. Answer . I have a family member who is a convicted felon. I have to say that he did a lot of growing up while in jail. This family member, because he was a convicted felon could not work in the health field. What I would do is if you are on probation ask your probation officer what kind of jobs that you can apply for. I would not judge anyone because of their past. You can always start on low of the ladder, but you can always work your way up!:) Answer . Hi, I am a 25 year old single father with 2 felony's on my record. It's worse the first felony I was arrested on I was charged with 16 felony's, I was only convicted of 1 but since I was arrested for all those others guess what still shows up on my background check? That's right 4 pages worth of nothing!!!! Anyway, I have worked in pretty much every field imaginable with that background, and the only way to do it is to find the companies that do not inquire about your background and work there without it. Don't mention it, don't glorify it, and obviously don't give them any "reason" to inquire about it!!! Meaning Don't screw'em because 99.9% of the company's that require that check ( minus government, extremely high money;banks, rocket building plants, you get it. ) have been screwed (illegally) in the past.

If you have several felony convictions and your state won't let you expunge all of them how do i find a job after i do my time I'm in Ohio?
I cannot address your employment difficulty but I can set your mind to rest about the fact that NO state will allow you to do a 'blanket' expunction of your entire criminal record. Ohio is NOT unique in this respect.

You are a convicted felon for evading arrest in a motor vehicle Will hospitals in Texas hire medical assistants with that felony?
Unable to asnwer this question. There is no way to know the individual hiring and employment practices of every hospital in the state of TX.
Can you become a plumber or work for a company as a plumber with a felony or misdemeanor conviction?
That would depend on the company. Most would want you to be bonded and the bonding company may or may not be willing. It would depend on what the conviction was for. If it was for theft I would doubt they would. Call a bonding company and ask them what their policy is.
It depends on what kind of job you're interested in, where you will be working, and who does the hiring (The USAF itself, or a civilian contractor).
Getting a conviction expunged does not restore your firearms rights. All it does is keep your conviction out of sight to the general public - you still remain a convicted felon, and thus may not own, possess, nor have access to firearms. This is federal law, and does not vary between states.
I am sorry, but no one under indictment of or convicted of a felonyare eligible of obtaining a concealed carry permit in the state ofOhio.
(in the US) In many states there are procedures on filing for expungement of a criminal offense, but all states vary.
Not as a routinely done thing. But, if there is some reason to research your fingerprints against your criminal record they will find your record.
A first offense DUI is almost always a misdemeanor, save for a few things that may be involved such as a death. In many states, however, a DUI will become a felony offense after multiple convictions-oftentimes three but it varies.
Yes, you can buy a ticket and fly, but if you are violating any kind of travel restrictions you may have on you, you are breaking the law.
Unless your postiion is protected by a personal service contract with your employer, or by a labor agreement, yes, they can.
Yes! Come on down to the Department of Motor Vehicles RIGHT AWAY so we can check your felonious record immediately, sir or ma'am...
The only time this could possibly occur is during a "plea bargain" with the prosecutor PRIOR to trial and if you agree to plead guilty to the misdemeanor without going to trial. If you have already been convicted of the felony it is too late to do anything about it.
the chances are slim. ADDED: (in the US) Some (few) states do allow the partial restoration of firearms rights to convicted felons WHO HAVE COMPLETED THEIR SENTENCE. HOWEVER - prevailing federal law still prohibits it. If you live in one of those few states that does restore rights, you are legal… to possess ONLY WHEN INSIDE THAT STATES BORDERS. Anywhere outside the border of that particular state could get you up to 15 additional years in federal prison. (MORE)
Yes. A conviction does not prohibit a person from traveling. However, if you are still on probation or parole, your travel may be restricted. Additional: Also, be advised that some nations may not grant you a visa, or entrance due to your conviction record.
As anything concerned with the law - it is POSSIBLE - however, it is doubtful.
The degree of a crime is relative to the crime itself and does not determine whether or not it is a felony. I.e. murder in the second degree is a class A felony and reckless burning in the second degree is a gross misdemeanor.
It doesn't go away. You get a felony (or misdemeanor) conviction on your adult record, it's on there for life. Even juvenile convictions don't simply go away - the records just get sealed when you turn 18.
You can look forward to losing: Your car, your freedom (incarceration), large sums of money (fines and court costs), your drivers license, your job, your right to own a firearm. You could lose other things, but those were the significant ones.
Yes - BUT, DUI is only a felony at state level in some states, and not a federal felony. Thus, it is possible to apply for relief of disability to regain your firearms rights.
Check the below website to determine if you may qualify if you were convicted of a STATE felony offense. However, if you've been convicted of a FEDERAL offense, the state procedure will not help you. Currently there are no effective procedures in place to expunge federal offense..

county jail inmate work programs...! or mcdonalds, kfc, etc...if your lucky. in other words, once they give a person an F it stays with them the rest of their life and creates losers throughout the country... sadly this is why 50 million americans live off foodstamps and government housing...and hav…e no real opportunity to become prosperous without resorting to acts of desperation , violence, selling drugs or prostitution... the courts would rather excessively fine and sieze civilians property than allow individual liberty...in the florida constitution it says you cannot be arrested for debt yet, be late on them fines and pay the purge or go to jail...etc. too bad the state doesnt realize its jeapordizing its citizens lives for temporary security for the wellbeing of its employees under orders. not all felonies are exceptable, however, even as an immature 18 year old, once youve got one, your f****d. goodluck finding a job though, im sure youll make it.
