I was arrested on a domestic violence charge a few years ago but the judgment was "amended". I did no jail time after the court hearing, paid no fines, and did not serve probation. The arrest shows on my record, that's all I really know. If I can't purchase a gun, would I be able to file for clemency regarding the strange or vague circumstance of this case. Of course I would provide all court documentation and a brief description of the reason I would be filing for said rights back.Ok, here is a bit more info after digging through the court's records. The charge was battery and then amended to violence in court. I am pretty sure I plead not guilty but it has been a while. The case was dismissed but it was joined with a custody hearing because the judge said we both needed to grow up. I remember the meeting for custody and the D/V charge was to be waved as long as we both completed a counseling class. Separately of course. As I mentioned I was never punished for the crime. It was a frivolous charge and the arresting officer said he would have not arrested me for it if his superior was not with him. The judge laughed at the original case which of course infuriated me ex.
Contact my office and I will review the disposition with the clerks office to confirm your status. I will need your full name and county of the case.
If in fact your case was dismissed and you never entered a plea of guilty or no contest, you should be able to purchase and possess a firearm. That being said you should obtain a certified copy of the disposition of the case to be sure. Additionally if there is an injunction in place or if you have any other convictions you may still have issues obtaining a gun.
