Court rules in favor of man in gun rights case

Washington residents who are convicted on a felony charge could lose their gun rights. However, if they do not commit another crime within five years after the conviction, they are allowed to petition for their gun rights to be restored. This is true even if they are convicted of another crime after five years has passed, according to the Washington Supreme Court.

How to restore voting rights in Washington

Those who have been convicted of a felony in the state of Washington may lose their right to vote. However, it may be possible to have those rights reinstated if certain conditions are met. For instance, a person may have to pay all fines, court costs and other fees imposed as part of a sentence. It may also be necessary to complete community service, required treatment or probation before regaining the right to vote.

Factors in getting a felony charge expunged

If a Washington resident is convicted of a felony, they may lose their right to own a firearm in the future. However, there are ways to get certain felony charges expunged. As a general rule, it may be easier to get a charge expunged if it is a state as opposed to a federal charge.
