Fall, Football and Hunting

Posted by Wayne Housley | Sep 01, 2016 | 0 Comments

Fall, football and hunting. As American as summer, baseball and apple pie for Mississippians. Fall is on its way and kids are lacing up their cleats, tightening their chinstraps and preparing for Friday night lights.

Hunting season is also on the horizon.  As a criminal defense attorney, I am very aware of the fact that a convicted felon no longer has the right to hunt or vote. For someone that is considered a convicted felon, allow me to assist in having your gun rights restored. In some cases, you might qualify for expungment which erases your record entirely. In other situations, you might consider a process called Certificate of Rehabilitation.

This statutory process is found in Miss. Code Section 97-37-5 (3) as follows:

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.
