My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.

You mention he was charged...
Can you tell me, was he convicted of this offense? Or a lesser offense?

Expert:  P. Simmons replied 1 year ago.

What you are describing is a misdemeanor assault charge...so if he was convicted of that? And not a domestic violence charge (as found under FL statutes Ch 741)? There is no prohibition of owning a firearm.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
