    Default Two Time Felon Can't Get Expunged, and Would Like a Firearm in the House

    My question involves criminal records for the state of: Ohio

    When I was 17 in Indiana, I crossed the railroad tracks into a junk yard looking to steal a shock absorber, I was a gear head with no brains or money. I had no idea at the time, (was scared and alone), i pled guilty to felony trespass. Never realized it didnt really even know what it meant. and never thought of it again. Thirty years later was convicted of possession of less than a gram of cocaine, Felony. I was lucky, and had a great job and built a good life. no other crimes, or even traffic tickets. Now im in my 60's and my neighborhood is getting rough, and would like to have a firearm. I contacted the DA in Cincinnati a few years back, and he slammed the door. 2 time felon. Is there anywhere to go, or anything I can do? Im not a gun nut, or a nut. Quiet retired guy and gal who have accumulated a nice life, and want to be safe and not break the laws. Any advice?

    Be prepared to spend a few thousand on an attorney in Cincinnati that specializes in expungement. If you can't get them expunged you might need to be pardoned by the Governor before you'll ever own a firearm.

    There is no such thing as expungement of convictions in Ohio. What is available to you if you only have a single non-violent offense is sealing, and a sealing is NEITHER necessary nor sufficient to restore gun rights in Ohio.

    What you need is to petition for a relief from the disabilities.

    What you NEED is an attorney that specializes in FIREARM RIGHTS RESTORATION. Those are readily available. He can tell you what he needs to do on your behalf (or even if you are going to be eligible).
    AJ is right, you're going to probably spend a few thousand on the process.
