  • Kelly Keegan Secures Permit to Purchase for Client Denied

    Charge(s): 

    When Kelly’s client was denied a Permit to Purchase by the St. Paul Police Department, he called her for help. The client had a conviction for Felony Criminal Vehicular Operation, which is not a crime of violence in Minnesota and therefore not a firearms prohibitor. Kelly contacted the St. Paul Police Department, notifying them of their error. The St. Paul Police Department quickly reversed their decision and granted the client’s Permit to Purchase application.

    • Case Type: Permit Denial
    • County: Ramsey
    • Outcome: Permit Granted
  • Gun Rights Restored from Felony Fifth Degree Sale of Controlled Substance Case

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client, nearly 25 years prior, was convicted of Felony Fifth Degree Sale of a Controlled Substance (Methamphetamine). This was a troubled period of the client’s life, but, following his conviction, he worked to get sober and change his life around. The client is now well-known in his community for being an upstanding citizen. He had four children, bought a home, started several businesses, and frequently volunteered with local efforts. A Judge previously acknowledged these efforts at rehabilitation by granting the client an expungement, but the client later learned that the expungement did not restore his right to possess firearms. Kelly worked tirelessly with the court to get access to the sealed file, to learn the details of her client’s case, and to prepare a Petition for the restoration of his firearm rights. After Kelly spoke with the prosecutor about her client’s successful rehabilitation, the prosecutor agreed not to object to the petition, a rarity in Nicollet County. Ultimately, the Judge heard the case and promptly granted the client’s Petition, restoring his firearm rights and allowing him to finally move on from this offense.

  • Firearm Rights Restored After Simple Robbery Conviction

    Charge(s): 

    When Kelly’s client was a young adult, an influx of wealth pushed him towards drug abuse. One day, he attempted to rob a drug dealer and was later convicted of Felony Simple Robbery. After his conviction, the client sought treatment for his addiction. He became sober, met his wife, and had two children. He also began a successful career. The client had moved on from this time in life, but the loss of his firearm rights still hung over him; he longed to hunt again with his family. Kelly petitioned the Court for restoration of his firearm rights. She received a strong objection from the prosecutor, but ultimately the Judge granted the client’s Petition. He can now return to a favorite pastime and put his conviction behind him.

    Kelly’s client was charged with and convicted of Felony Theft after he walked out of a store with a rifle without purchasing it.

Before his offense, he had a long history involving firearms and hunting, and longed to return to those activities. Kelly petitioned the Court for restoration of her client’s firearm rights, but received a strong objection from the Washington County Attorney’s Office. Kelly presented a compelling case, and ultimately the Judge agreed with Kelly and granted her client’s petition.
