  • Gun Rights Restored for Kelly Keegan’s Client with Lifetime Prohibition

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client was convicted in 2008 in Sibley County of a Felony Methamphetamine Related Crime Involving a Child after the car he, a friend and her child were traveling in was stopped and police noticed a smoking pipe in his pocket. This conviction caused a lifetime ban on possessing firearms which meant he could no longer hunt for deer and pheasant with his father as he had since he was a child, nor teach his children how to hunt. Kelly convinced the judge that her client’s drug use was well in his past and that there was good cause to restore his gun rights. As a result, Kelly’s client may once again go hunting with his father and carry on family traditions by teaching his children how to hunt.

  • Gun Rights Restored for Client Convicted of Felony Theft of a Vehicle

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client came to her to restore the gun rights he had lost as a result of a 17-year-old felony vehicle theft conviction in Ramsey County that arose after he used his stepfather’s car without permission. The Ramsey County Prosecutor strongly opposed restoration due to the client’s several other criminal offenses since, but withdrew her opposition after the Minnesota Supreme Court removed the offense of motor vehicle theft from the definition of ‘crimes of violence’.  Based on the Supreme Court’s ruling and Kelly’s arguments the judge restored her client’s gun rights so that he may now go hunting again for the first time since he was 15.
