If you were convicted of a crime of violence as an EJJ, you would be ineligible to possess a firearm under current law (M.S. 624.713). The good news is that you have a lot of possible remedies to this situation. First, you can explore a juvenile expungement or return of your records (which you have already looked into it seems). You can also petition the court for restoration of your firearm rights.
Give me a call if you want to further discuss your options, 612-223-7286
There is a possibility of petitioning the court to restore your civil rights, which includes your right to possess a firearm. Its a process that involves a lot of paperwork and typically takes about 4 -5 months to complete. You can do this on your own or hire an attorney to assist and represent you.
I hope you find this information helpful and feel free to contact me if you have any further questions. I wish you the best of luck.
I would meet with a criminal attorney in person. You can find on one AVVO.
AVVO DISCLAIMER I am licensed in Minnesota only and my answers on Avvo assume Minnesota law. The answers I provide are for general information only and are NOT INTENDED AS LEGAL ADVICE and therefore must not be relied upon. Legal advice must be based on the interaction between an attorney and client and specific exact facts and the law. I do not retain clients without a signed RETAINER AGREEMENT. The Avvo forum does not allow for the discussion and the interaction necessary to form a complete legal analysis. Therefore the answers given to any specific question would most likely be different if there was attorney-client interaction. The exchange of information through this forum does not establish such an attorney client relationship. An attorney-client relationship is established only by personal and direct consultation with me followed by the execution of a written attorney-client agreement signed by each of us. The communications on this website are not privileged nor are they confidential and I assume no duty to anyone by my participation on Avvo or because I have answered or commented on a question. All legal proceedings involve deadlines and statutory time limiting statutes. So that legal rights are not lost for failure to timely take appropriate action and because I do not provide legal advice in the answers to any question, if you are an interested party you should promptly and personally consult with an qualified attorney for legal advice licensed in the proper jurisdiction. Finally, see Avvo's terms and conditions of use, specifically item 9, incorporated by this reference.
