In most states it is another felony for a convicted felon to own or be in posession of a firearm.

It would also depend upon the person's "terms of release". Even though someone has served their sentence, in most cases certain requirements are imposed upon said person, especially when it pertains to firearms. Generally a convicted felon cannot use or be in the presence of a firearm for several years; the exact time would be determined by the release agreement and/or state law . In a few states an exception is made relating to legal, licensed firearms belonging to another person but in the same residence as the person in question.

That is not possible, you must be arrested, charged and have a trial before you can be convicted of a crime.

(in the US) I have never heard of a liquor license being issued to a convicted felon.

No. A "pardon" means that only his sentence has been pardoned. it does NOT mean that his crime or offense is wiped clean. He is still a convicted felon, just as if he had served the full term of his sentence in prison. As a convicted felon he may never own, or be in possession of, firearms.

You can't be convicted unless you are found guilty. You can't be found guilty if you were never brought to court. You can't be brought to court if you were never arrested, or charged.

Depending on the state you were convicted in, you may possibly be able to petition to have some of your firearm privileges restored. However, if you were a convicted Federal felon, never.

No. DUI is a crime because it shows an "I don't care if I kill or injure someone else by my carelessness", and such people should not be armed.

User Avatar

No. Probation is a sentence for being adjudged guilty. He is still a convicted felon.

Kevin Garnett has never been arrested, nor has he been a felon, wanted criminal, or any type of shady character!

If he was convicted in state court - not without having his record expunged by the state of AZ - If he is a felon convicted in a FEDERAL court he can never be eligible to own or possess a firearm including black powder weapons.

FOREVER. Convicted felons can never own a firearm or vote.

(in the US) A convicted felon could never become a sworn law enforcement officer, or be employed in any capacity which might require him to give evidence in court and be subject to examination and ccross examination on the question of their truthfulness.

User Avatar

Yes, it will show that you were arrested and then charged with the crime. But it will show you were never convicted of it.

A convicted felon always remains a convicted felon. That classification NEVER 'goes away. An expunged or sealed record only means that your record is sealed from the view of the general public. It always remains accessible to government agencies, law enforcement and the courts. Any restrictions placed upon you by your status as a convicted felon will always remain in place and will never go away. The only advantage is that the general public will not be able to learn of your past offense.

User Avatar

Never, unless their conviction gets overturned - not expunged, not pardoned, but actually overturned.

User Avatar

Generally speaking, yes. If you were never convicted, you can obtain a permit. If the charges were expunged, it depends. Expunged is not necessarily the same as having your rights restored.

User Avatar

There is no statute of limitations for this offense. Federal Law states that a convicted felon can NEVER be in possession of a firearm.

User Avatar

Not necessarily. There is a reason that employers conduct background checks on their prospective hires. The classification of "felon" covers a WIDE multitude of offenses - all the way from accounting fraud to homicide. Many convicted felons were never charged with crimes of violence.

User Avatar

No a felon owning a gun is a violation of the law and is possibly endangering the public. It doesn't matter if the person is nonviolent, what matters is that the person is a felon. Once a felony is on a persons record it never comes off.

User Avatar

If you were not convicted, then you can still purchase a gun. Even if you had been convicted of a misdemeanor, you could still purchase a gun, but not for a felony. I should know, I just spent 18 months and $20,000 fighting charges of aggravated assault and commission of a felony with a firearm. I won.

A convicted felon cant own a firearm in the United States.I guess you could try to join the Army?........--------------------------------------------Added: In SOME states felons convicted of statecrimes can gain partial restoration of firearms privileges. However Federally convicted felons can NEVER regain firearms privileges. Congress has continuously failed to fund any federal process by which federally convicted felons can do so.----------------------------------------------Forget about joining the Army, they do not take felons.

You are not "convicted" unless a verdict has been rendered and a sentence pronounced. It that never took place prior to the plea bargain, then no, you are not.
