Your offender class determines parole eligibility, which you do not list. It is possible that you would be eligible for parole now if not for the AZ hold for a VOP.

There is no counterclaim to a criminal charge. If the criminal charge was dismissed, you might have had a civil rights action for an illegal arrest. But from the facts given, it does not look like that was the case. You will need to hire an attorney.

Sometimes, but the charges must be dismissed. If Bound Over or an Indictment rendered, then it is almost impossible. Hire an attorney that knows what a GTLA action is.

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.

Yes it is possible... You have to make a claim, and must be able to prove the source of cash was not from a criminal enterprise. It will be difficult and you will be cross examined under oath.

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.
