  • Gun Rights Restored for Juvenile Case


    When Kelly’s client was just 15 years old, he was charged with Felony Terroristic Threats in Carver County. At the time, he was just a kid with an attitude problem. He later went on to join the Marine Corps and became an upstanding citizen. Over 15 years later, he learned that he was prohibited from possessing firearms. In his career, the client often worked with law enforcement and was around firearms. The knowledge that he was prohibited was an unfortunate surprise, and so he immediately sought a solution. Kelly petitioned the Court for restoration of her client’s right to possess firearms. After submitting compelling background information to the Carver County Attorney’s Office, the prosecutor waived any objection to the petition, and the Court subsequently granted the client’s request for restoration of his rights. Now Kelly’s client can continue his work without limitations.

  • Kelly Keegan Helps Client Put Conviction Behind Him


    Over twenty years following a conviction for Misdemeanor Fifth Degree Domestic Assault, Kelly’s client sought her help cleaning up his criminal record. As a financial advisor, the client’s record often became an obstacle. Kelly petitioned the court for an expungement of his criminal case. In doing so, she also noticed that the statute for which he was convicted could lead to problems in possessing firearms because it did not specify a subdivision. She worked with the prosecutor to specify that his conviction was for Misdemeanor Fifth Degree Domestic Assault – Fear, which was not a firearms prohibitor. With the conviction statute updated, the record was eventually expunged. Kelly thus successfully mitigated the consequences of the client’s conviction.
