Legal Answers
25 Questions Answered
Q. If I was charged with a class c felony as a minor can I purchase a firearm at 18? Or 21?
A: When you say charged, do you mean convicted? If you were convicted, then your right to possess a firearm is likely revoked. You would need to get your right bear arms reinstated. The good news is that you may get that right reinstated if you have been crime free for 5 years. You would need to petition the superior court of the county in which you live (if you reside in Washington) OR the county of the court where the conviction occurred.
Q. I have a detective and adult services checking on my mom because she took out 50,000 out of her bank America account
A: You need to call a lawyer. APS thinks you had her get the money for your benefit. They might try and remove her from your care and send charges to a prosecutor. I suggest you call a local criminal law attorney and meet with them. This need to be done before you and or mom meet with them. Also, follow up with her Dr and get the record to show she is doing better. You need to protect yourself.
Q. 15 years ago I was a first time offender charge with simple battery 16-5-23. I was given a program to take and I did not
A: It looks as though the offense was out of Georgia? I advise you to speak to an attorney who is licensed to practice in the state of your offense. The answer would depend on what type of battery (assault) If you were convicted in Washington. If the charge included Domestic Violence or was a felony, you would need to restore your right to possess firearms. This only applies if the charge was from Washington and you live here. Since the charge seems to be out of another state, then I suggest you speak to an attorney from there.
