Recent Non Violent questions

I am a resident of South Dakota and have recently been

I am a resident of South Dakota and have recently been discharged from parole from a nonviolent felony. I understand that I have been restored my voting rights but I am a bit confused regarding my hunting and gun ownership rights. I have read that because I am a nonviolent felon that my hunting and gun ownership rights have also been restored. I also read that if I were a violent felon then I would have to wait 15 years before my gun rights would be restored. Is this correct and if so what do I need to do to begin the process of obtaining my gun permit? Thanks!

My wife got me arrested charge, (which is a totally false

My wife got me arrested for DV charge, (which is a totally false allegation) in Brooklyn NY. She signed a waiver of prosecution. but the DA offered my lawyer an ACD with a full order of protection. Also she is saying she needs a full order but has been calling me. I did not respond and did tell my lawyer. She told the DA that she won't call again but she is upset and is thinking about revoking the waiver. Can she revoke what she signed? Also I have zero priors and extremely worried that a DV and OOP will stop me from getting good jobs. I want this whole thing exspunged/sealed so that i can go on with my life. I believe she is doing this to get a greencard through VAWA. Please advise
