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.

I have a record that prevents me from buying a fire arm.

I have a record that prevents me from buying a fire arm. About 20+ years I spanked a 4 yr. old boy (girls friends) for pooping his pants on purpose. I bought fire arms after that but then the laws were changed and considered the offense to be "domestic violence" and was unable to buy a gun. Although I was a combat vet and worked for usda and dept. of interior until I retired. My question is can you clear my record so I can buy a gun? Thanks Dave
