My Son was charged and pled guilty on his 21st Birthday for Intoxication and resisting arrest in Michigan and recieved a Gross misdemeaner and probation. This was 20 years ago. Can he legally buy a firearm?
I think you mean a high misdemeanor and probably not, but he should consult with an attorney. He also may be able to get his record expunged, so definitely worthwhile to do a consult.
More details are required to answer your question. His actual criminal history will have to be reviewed but there may be, should be, avenues for relief available if that is his only brush with the law.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, my PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. It is based on such limited information that it is a general answer, and should not be relied upon as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship, that may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services. Providing counsel and representation is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
