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.
