any felon not convicted of a sexual, violence or robbery charge and satisfies his completion date automatically has full rights instated as a citizen including guns Rights.
This kind of misinformation can be harmful. While a felon's right to bear arms is automatically restored (under most circumstances) under STATE law, it is not under FEDERAL law. 18 USC 922 bars persons who have been convicted of felonies and some misdemeanors from possessing firearms. If you have questions about what (if anything) needs to be done to restore your 2nd Amendment rights, please contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Most of us would be happy to talk through your issues with you so you don't have to risk a federal felony conviction.See question

It's possible to get your right to bear arms back if you were placed on probation without going on a rider. However, there are some hoops you'd need to jump through to get them back. You should have an attorney review the status of your case before attempting to purchase a firearm so you know where your 2nd Amendment rights stand.See question
I am in the USA on an ESTA and am due to be back in the UK before my court date! I have never committed a crime before so have no previous convictions.
In the counties I practice in, most judges will excuse you and allow counsel to appear on your behalf if you jump through the right hoops. As Mr. O'Connor correctly points out, the misdemeanor criminal rules allow for a lawyer to show up for you unless there's an order to the contrary. However in Ada and Canyon Counties, the judges order you to be there personally in their Notices of Hearing (the slip of paper with your court date). Hope this helps!See question

As I understand it, you've already been convicted of the DUI and were found to have violated your probation, and now you want your record cleared. If that's the case, there are two things you can do, and they are both long shots: you could seek a pardon, or you could try and have your record sealed.
If, on the other hand, you are just charged with the DUI, you could potentially have your felony dismissed if you can avoid a probation violation.
