Not sure of your "Court" fraud, but a Governmental Tort Liability Action is 1 year from injury. Probably any other applicable cause of action will also be 1 year, except some property torts are 3 years.

Hopefully your Diversion is completed, including costs. Then the Indictment and Judgment must be Dismissed. Finally you have to Expunge everything, which can take a few months. Only then will you be ready to buy firearms from an FFL and vote.

It sounds like a FL Conviction, so you will have to ask FL lawyers. But TN is very difficult to transfer Probation Jurisdiction, and I bet it is no easier in FL. He should talk to his FL Probation Officer also, especially since that is who will violate him.

No TNSC says that is the whole purpose of expungement. But first you need to be sure you got a successful expungement. Sometimes you have to do it again with your certified order.

That should be at least one C Felony. The Reckless Endangerment can be a misdemeanor or felony. It may have been an illegal stop, for which suppression motions are made.

Apparently you have not been charged with a crime at this time. So no, no Court yet. That money will be subject to some type of Forfeiture, and if you want it back, then a Claim filing and a Court Hearing will be necessary.

Aggravated Arson is a Class A Felony, so no death penalty. If a death occurs, then a possible homicide charge could result in addition to the arson charge.
