Felony Related Questions

A felony is a serious crime that can be punishable by death or a term of imprisonment in a State or Federal prison. It is a crime that carries a minimum term of one year or more in state prison. In some cases, a sentence upon conviction for a felony can sometimes be less than one year. This is based on the consideration of the judge and should fall within the limits set by statute. The U.S. Constitution sometimes referred to felonies as “high crimes”. When individuals commit a crime, often these individuals are charged with a felony. What are the felony punishments? What consist of a felony trial? Can an individual receive a felony expungement? These questions are often answered by the Experts below.

If an individual is charged with a felony, are they forever considered a felon?

An individual can be charged with a felony but is not yet considered a felon until they are convicted of the felony charge in a court. Once an individual is convicted of the felony, the felony charge will remain on their record even after they complete any prison time and or probation. The only way to go back to not being a felon is to have the felony charge pardoned by the governor of the state in which the crime and sentence was founded.

If an individual was convicted of a felony 27 years ago for cultivating marijuana in the state of Colorado and other wise has had a clean record, when can they expect to be able to legally carry a firearm?

Once lost, the state of Colorado has no way of restoring the right to carry a firearm. The federal government would accept an expungement of a felony to restore the rights, but Colorado does not expunge felonies. They could only seal them. Sealing the felony would not be sufficient enough for the federal government.

The only way an individual, at least in Colorado, could restore their right to carry a firearm would be via a gubernatorial pardon. These are rare, but they usually don’t require a lawyer.

I'm currently on felony probation for grand theft in Florida. I've have been ordered to pay restitution, but because of my record have been unable to find sufficient work to do so. What can I do to be released from probation and have my felony expunged from my record?

As long as you are making a good faith effort in paying the restitution you cannot be sent to jail but you can be violated for failure to make restitution. As long as you make even small payments, continue to look for work, and truly have no means to pay the full restitution, the court is not likely to find you in violation. Typically, if there are cost still owed and it is due to a real inability to pay, the court will convert the debt into a civil lien. As for expunging the felony, a felony conviction cannot be expunged in the state of Florida.

Having the right information and understanding of felonies can help when dealing with all types of felony charges. Experts can help answer if a felony charge can be expunged or how to restore certain rights that were taken away when convicted of a felony. Get the answers fast and affordably by asking an Expert.

  • I am considering to sue an atty, Mr, T. for negligence. I

    I am considering to sue an atty, Mr, T. for negligence. I am asking for $ 7,500 of the total amount I gave him...$15,000.00 I practiced pain management and was placed in a clinic in Ga. It turned out to be a pill mill. even though I called the DEA and left early, I was indicted with 38 felony accounts I was indicted on 8/30/2012. I hired Mr. T at that time. I terminated his services in 1/2013. I terminated him for the following reasons 1) He did not return my phone calls. 2)The PA gave him 20 CDs which contained the evidence they used to indict me. Mr. T printed out what he felt was relevant, but would not allow me to review the 20 CDs. There was much information on the CDs which was relevant to my case. In fact, my new atty was able to have all felonies dropped and I was charged with 1 misdemeanor only. There was a spreadsheet which showed all the patients I have seen as well as the medications I prescribed. I proved to the DEA that over 90% of the prescriptions were forged and thus all felony charges were dropped. 3) Mr. T wrote my malpractice agent a note saying that I was innocent. However, when he heard about this lawsuit, he wrote that my conduct was egregious and I should accept the reprehensible acts I have committed. 4)The judge would not allow my DEA license to be suspended. However, the DEA called all the pharmacies and told them about my indictment. The pharmacists refused to fill my prescriptions and I lost my job. Mr. T was SUPPOSED to arrange a meeting with a judge to stop the DEA's activity. By the way I pled guilty to a misdemeanor in 4/2014. I can not practice medicine for 5 years. I have no jail time, no financial penalty. question1 Do you feel this is negligent behavior? Why?  Question 2:   What should I subpoena of Mr. T's records?      Question 3:   Is there a buddy system where it is unlikely that a judge will go against an atty.                         Question 4 :  When I discussed Mr. T changing his mind from not guilty to my committing egregious acts with the only change being my sueing him. Please comment

    5) I can not find a lawyer to represent me in small claims court. He does not have to come to court, but I want his advise in presenting his case. 6) How much money should I ask for? Thank you Bruce

  • I am a practicing veterinarian, and the defendant in this case.

    I am a practicing veterinarian, and the defendant in this case. On December 26, 2010, I was sued by a client (who is also a fairly well known personal injury attorney in this area) whose dog escaped from it's own yard (meaning from the CLIENT'S HOME). I am now waiting on their second (2nd) amended complaint, almost exactly two (2) years from the initial filing - the case is moving backward. During "Discovery" the PI plaintiff stated (in answers to written questions) some facts concerning the good samaritin's actions that in essence document a third degree felony commited by the good samaritan. (FL title 46, chapter 828 I believe, etc.), as well as multiple county ordinances and several Florida Statutes by completely abandoning the lost pet in another neighborhood without shelter or food, where it then unfortunately died. Must I report this to the appropriate ANIMAL AUTHORITIES and to the COURTS in Florida as this information was put forward in writing responding to answers submitted to the PI plaintiff and all answers were NOTORIZED. THE FACT THAT THE ALLEGED FELONY IS IN WRITING, BY THE PLAINTIFF, WOULD SEEM TO ME THAT THIS EVENT MUST BE REPORTED TO THE PROPER ANIMAL AUTHORITIES. My attorney of course does not want to bring this matter up as I believe he believes these facts of animal neglect will continuously prolong the case for many more years. Plaintiff also, in his notorized answers to written questions. to a third degree misdemeaner degree of animal cruelty in his notorized answers. Regarding his accusations against me (my receptionists answered the phone call from the good samaritin incorrectly - are policies are strict in the area "at large" and all three of my receptionists have nothing to lie about, in any deposition.
    I understand that my questions are not directly related to why I am being sued. Those issues are seperate and must be dealt with seperately.
    To summerize do I have a duty to the court and citizens of the county and animal control to report this alleged third degree felony by the samaritin? This is a notorized document and I do not want it to come back to haunt me. I am also well aware of the laws governing my profession as a DVM in Florida and act accordingly.
