I just want to be clear, you are a convicted felon and your husband is not and your husband is legally able to posses firearms. If this is the case, even though your husband can legally own a firearm, that does not prevent that same firearm from being attached to you if the circumstance arises,...Read more »

Not that I am aware of, but if it is used in a commission of a crime, it could be considered a deadly weapon if it closely resembles an actual firearm. If it is going to be used for some sort of training and kept within the training facility, there should be no issues, but if it is seen outside the...Read more »
The Public Defender can absolutely speak to your son alone. There is nothing illegal about an attorney speaking with their client in private. If you are not pleased with the Public Defender, you are always welcome to hire a private criminal defense attorney to assist your son with this matter.
My son's mother tested positive for Covid and went into quarantine. They live with her parents, who are both high-risk for Covid complications. I repeatedly offered to take care of my son, but was refused. Is this child endangerment because my son was at risk of not having anyone to take care... Read more »

Civil matters do not carry an jail time but if he reports this matter to the police, you are looking at a Misdemeanor offense at the very least. Also, you should never admit to an offense online. If possible, you should figure out a way to remove this post.
First, firearms on not possessed by name. If it is in the house, it could be attributed to everyone and anyone found in that house.

Did they steal the collectibles from you? Did they use that money to buy the new house? If the police won't pursue the theft, you can't force them. You can sue them for the cost of your stuff. Do they have enough equity in the house to go after? However, they could then file bankruptcy...Read more »
