Las Vegas, NV asked in Criminal Law for California

Q: Can a felon become a expert witness . I have over 30 years experience with Gangs,gang violence, and prison gangs.

I have successfully represented myself in court for over 10 years. My convictions are false and I'm gathering information and evidence to receive a pardon or retrial. They are over 20 years old and some of the witness are willing to tell the truth now.
