Did I lose gun right ? Convicted of a misdemeanor, Grand Theft

Asked over 1 year ago - Clearlake Oaks, CA

When I was sentenced, The Prosecution wanted me to plea to a Felony, but the Judge sentenced me to a Misdemeanor with five year probation instead of the felony and the Prosecution agreed to this because I would not agree to a felony, the felony would have cost me my C.A. sales license and the Judge agreed I should not lose any licenses. It has been over 10 years. Also on my probation papers I sighed the box regarding firearms was not checked.

    Answered . If you pled to a misdemeanor grand theft, then loss of gun rights is not one of the terms of punishment, unless that is something that was part of the plea bargain with you and the prosecutor. All of the misdemeanor charges that lose gun privileges are found in Penal Code 12021(c)(1)
