Nearly 10 yrs ago I was convicted of a felony (child support). In that time I have turned my life around, faithfully pay my support and am a Supervisor at a large plant. But still a felon and honestly forget that fact because of the conviction being such a lessor felony.
I married last year and my two stepsons love to hunt and have rifles. The thought of me being a felon just never entered my mind until 2 days ago when the state police where at are home (not for anything crimminal) but they discovered I was a felon and arrested me for having firearms although not one rifle is registered to me. These kids have had their hunting rifles for years as gifts from their grandfather.
Can the judge show me leniency and not indicte me? How much am I really in?
