In 2009, I entered into a plea agreement with a Prosecuting Attorney for the State of Missouri to plead guilty to two charges of "Theft by Deceit", both Class C Felonies. The plea agreement was that I would only receive 5 years of Supervised Probation and that it would be an SIS that would become a sealed case with no public record of such cases after successful completion of Probation. Last month, I was recommended for early release (at 2.5 years) and granted release. The cases are now sealed and no longer public and I have been released from probation.
Do I need to hire legal counsel in order to regain my 2nd amendment right or is it restored automatically? There was no conviction. I've heard numerous answers in both directions. Could someone offer a supported answer?
