Being labeled as a violent sexual predator is irrelevant, the person will have a felony conviction for some sex offense. All felons are prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Great question.

If there is credible evidence that the recording has been manipulated, your attorney should file both a motion to suppress and a motion in limine.

The motion to suppress would argue that the evidence is inadmissible on several different grounds including fraud upon...

Yes; their status as a prosecutor does not give immunity to murder charges and there is no statute of limitations on when charges for murder can be filed.

Attorneys will not generally quote fees in public forums like this. I suggest you contact me or other attorneys privately through this site. For one thing, in order to quote a fee, an attorney would need to discuss the facts of your case, and you definitely do not want to do that publicly!
