I have 3 questions at this point. 1. How often does a felon

I have 3 questions at this point.1. How often does a felon get charged with a non-violent "Illegal possession of a firearm" to return again later with a "violent firearm" charge??2. How does an ex-offender in Idaho get her gun rights back? I personally asked and begged my judges to send me to prison for the T.C. Program there. I did my 5 years + 3 years on parole. All of that was over 6/10/11 I believe.3. I work in Ontario, Oregon. On Feb. 3, 2016, I found a complete money-gram for more than $400.00 I did what a "good citizen" would do and I took it to the police department there. The SGt. that took the money and did a "report" sent me an e-mail telling me the exact thing he said in person. He said, "wait the 90 days and come back to get the steps to claim it if it is still here".I waited the 90 days and returned. I was given the message from the lady that handles these things. Shet old me that the "chief says, you can't have it". I did some research and found out that the Sgt. led me astray so they could keep the money on purpose. Court clerk told me that "if you want the money, you better get a lawyer!"

Hello, I recently received a non-traffic citation for marijuana and paraphernalia possession which I confessed to (in the state of New Mexico). It was less than an ounce and I've already researched the standard sentencing for these charges. I was given a date to appear in court. What I was wondering was whether or not a lawyer would be beneficial given these circumstances to avoid any harsh sentences.
