May I buy and posses a firearm in the state of Louisiana now

May I buy and posses a firearm in the state of Louisiana now that it has been over 10 years since I finished my probation on a felony conviction of simple burglary? I received the first offender pardon at the time. I talked to a federal atf agent last year, and he told me that Obama and the federal government doesn't recognize the state pardon now and I wasn't able to purchase or possess a firearm outside of Louisiana now? Is this true?

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person

Does a county sheriff have the authority to hold a person who has been arrested and charged with child cruelty? My step daughter spanked her 4 year old and it was video taped. I have not seen the video, but I was told the spanking was excessive. Bond was posted and paid on Monday, September 12 and I have been told every day this week the sheriff has not slowed down long enough to view the video. Therefore, the sheriff is continuing to hold her in the county jail. My step daughter is a first time offender and has never been in trouble, not even a speeding ticket. Can you please give me some advice. Oh, and I have been told by the public defender's office the sheriff is the one who decides on a court date. Is this true?

My bf is currently in county jail in NJ and has been there

My bf is currently in county jail in NJ and has been there for 6 months. He was in the Drug Court program. However, he now has new charges. An member of the Drug Court team visited him in jail about 2 weeks ago to conduct an evaluation, and asked him if he wanted to stay in the program. He said "yes" that he really needs the help. The gentleman said they wanted to help him. Well when I called the coordinator of the Drug court program yesterday, she said the decision to keep him in the program was still pending. He hasn't been to court in months (they schedule court every few weeks and then keep postpoing it). Neither one of his public defenders have returned our calls or spoke to him in months. He wants to know if in your professional opinion he has a real chance at staying in the program, since they did the evaluation?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: NJJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: He was charged with a bunch of stuff but only has been indicted on one of the charges...two were remanded.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No thank you

I'm being charged with a felony forged documents and

I'm being charged with a felony forged documents and burglary of a bank for trying to cash or deposit a check into my bank account that I didn't know was bad. I have a housecleaning business that I advertise on Craigslist and was hired to clean a house and possibly others in a city about an hour away from where I reside, this is not unusual in this business. The person was going to put the money in my account but when I met them they gave me a check for over the amount and said there would be more work to come as to why. I went to a wellsfargo bank, who I bank with and asked to cash or deposit but didn't know if cashing was even an option since my account was upgrading from opportunity banking (can't cash have to wait for next day deposit) to a regular account (where you can same day cash checks). I was arrested IN THE BANK and released on OR the next day. I spoke with my local branch and they said this was very unusual and if the manager of that bank had me arrested why was my account even still open? They said I had given out too much personal info with my online banking info I provided the person who gave me the check and they could access my funds and clean my a count out so closed that account under lost or stolen and opened up a new one as well as I was still upgraded in my banking account as mentioned before. My public defender is not helping at all and I'm scheduled for a trial in a few weeks! I'm a single mother of three children with NO family to help so my kids would end up in foster care if something happened to me. To top it off were staying in a domestic violence shelter on top of everything else. And I forgot to mention but I tried contacting the person that "hired me" but it was a google number or something like that that was no longer working.
