What would be the best way to restore my God given rights to bear arms?
answered on Feb 11, 2022
Nothing took away your God given right to bear arms, not even a felony conviction. You may still carry a firearm, but you will be arrested and put in prison for an extended period for doing so.
To restore your legal right to bear arms in Arkansas, you will most likely need a Governor’s... Read more »

They have to have reasonable suspicion to ruin the dog or they have to have another person running the dog while they continue writing you a traffic ticket

You need to speak with an attorney who works in the Federal Courts. Right now. Don't speak with anyone until you speak with that attorney!!
I was wondering if the state of Arkansas follows federal law concerning felon in possession of antique/pre-1899 muzzleloading firearms. I know that federal law does not prohibit us from using/possessing these types of firearms. I am unsure if the state has any Laws regarding them, and if they do,... Read more »

You can't possess those in Arkansas as a felon, but air rifles are probably legal.
You can get a pardon from the governor if the conviction was in Arkansas.
We made the transaction on camera with a bank teller who verified he had sufficient $ in his accountThe $ cleared into my account, then the next day it was returned to the buyer. I lost the $ and my car. Now they aren't answering the phone. What can I do?

File a complaint with the police department where this event occurred. Then take that complaint to the prosecutor. This is a crime even though stopping payment on a check is allowed. Failing to return the vehicle is theft.

I have a buddy who was going to serve a 90 day parole violation on January 9th and got caught with a gun... Will he automatically get a year denial when he goes up for parole or is it an option but not automatic??
answered on Jan 14, 2020
A violation of parole does not mean that an individual will get an automatic year of incarceration. If your friend signed for 90 days on the parole violation then he will be released after the 90 days pending the outcome of the new charge and any bond they will have to make after the parole hold...

Yup. A person can threaten you with reporting a crime or starting a civil action to correct your behaviour - that's perfectly legal. But be my boyfriend or else ... that is blackmail. The real question is what are you going to do about it? Leave her and face criminal charges? What is worse?
answered on Aug 1, 2019
Being on bond does not necessarily disqualify a person from having a lawyer appointed to represent him/her. The person may have become unable to hire a lawyer because he spent most or all of his money on the bond. Often the person on bond didn't pay for his own release, rather friends or... Read more »

You need both. One is a request for the Court to seal your charge that you file, and the other is the document you submit to the Court, which the judge signs and actually gets the record sealed.
The simple seal of a dismissed charged and a misdemeanor 5 years old?
answered on Jul 25, 2019
I'm fairly certain there are forms for this somewhere online. Ark. Code Ann. 16-90-1401 and the statutes in that subsection will tell you everything you need to do to get a misdemeanor sealed.
You don't absolutely have to have a lawyer, but it would make the process easier for you.

Certain felonies can be expunged if you've met certain requirements. You'll have to be more specific in order for a lawyer to answer your question.

Theft by receiving only requires that you be in possession of stolen property.
answered on Apr 1, 2019
You can not possess a firearm if you are a felon, even if it is not yours and you are just holding it for someone.

Anything is possible.
It is like asking a doctor: I have an infection, can I be cured?
While both are possible, there are certain things a doctor needs to know.
A doctor has to examine the patient, read the results of blood. Urine, and other tests, review the patient's history, etc.
