_0001_expungeBeing arrested and/or convicted of a crime has an ongoing effect on an individual’s life.

Many employers make hiring decisions based upon an individual’s criminal record and a criminal history may prevent you from voting or purchasing a firearm. In Mississippi, it is possible to have a misdemeanor and some felony convictions expunged to help put your life back together.

In order to begin this process, you will need an attorney to prepare a petition for expungement and then get an Order signed by the Court to have the crime expunged from your record. If you find yourself needing an experienced, aggressive attorney to have your criminal record expunged, contact our office today for a free consultation.

Medico-legal-questions-involving-a-firearm-crimeIn the State of Mississippi, hunting is a popular recreational pastime. However, being convicted of a crime hinders an individual’s ability to own or possess a firearm. The good news is a relatively new law in Mississippi allows for a convicted felon to petition the Court for a Certificate of Rehabilitation, which if granted, will allow felons to own and possess firearms.
Miss. Code Ann. Sec. 97-37-5(3) provides:

A person who has been convicted of a felony under the laws of this state may apply to the court in which he was convicted for a certificate of rehabilitation. The court may grant such certificate in its discretion upon a showing to the satisfaction of the court that the applicant has been rehabilitated and has led a useful, productive and law-abiding life since the completion of his sentence and upon the finding of the court that he will not be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety.

If you have been convicted of a felony and would like to lawfully be able to own a firearm and enjoy Mississippi’s most popular pastime, call our office today for a free consultation.
