That is a disabling conviction, yes. And under the current state of things, a pardon would be it. There is a law providing for application to the ATF for relief, but congress has never funded processing of such applications.

Q: Can cops pick me up for a warrant I have as I walk out of mental heath facility after being released?
Dimitrios Makridis
Dimitrios Makridis answered on Nov 20, 2019

An active warrant can be resolved by (1) appearing in front of a judge and trying to get it set aside, (2) turning yourself in, or (3) getting picked up on it, so the answer to your question is yes.

We would need a bit more information to analyze whether or not there is a double jeopardy issue here but generally you can be charged with more than one offense out of a situation if each offense has a separate element or part.

Well, you said you drove to her house and talked to her and then that you never had contact with her. So that’s not a great start. It’s possible that you mean a different “her.” Keeping this sort of stuff straight for the jury is exactly why it’s important to have a lawyer. You also... Read more »
