  • Kelly Keegan Restores Client’s Gun Rights by Correcting Domestic Assault Conviction

    Charge(s): 

    After first obtaining an expungement for work reasons, Kelly’s client approached her to restore his gun rights so he could take his grandkids hunting. When he approached Kelly, he knew he was prohibited because he had been denied a permit to purchase, but he wasn’t sure why or what to do about it. After reviewing court records, Kelly determined that he was prohibited due to an imprecise conviction statute for a 1998 domestic assault in Hennepin County involving his stepson. Kelly persuaded the prosecutor to agree to the change, obtained court approval for fixing her client’s records, and ensured that all agencies updated their files. Her client may now purchase and possess firearms without delays for the first time in over twenty years so that he can take his grandkids hunting.

  • Kelly Keegan’s Client Granted Expungement for Domestic Assault Charge

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client was charged in 2019 in Hennepin County with Misdemeanor Domestic Assault for allegedly throwing her car keys at her father during an argument. The charge was continued for dismissal and ultimately dismissed later the same year. However, due to the fact that the proceedings were still public, Kelly’s client was turned down for several jobs and had difficulties renting an apartment. She was also concerned that the record could prevent her from pursuing a career in a health-related field. The court granted the expungement with the result that Kelly’s client may now pursue her education and ultimate dream job in a health-related field.

  • Kelly Restores Gun Rights for Avid Outdoorsman Convicted of Felony First Degree Aggravated Robbery

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client loves fishing, bow hunting and camping with his fiancée on mountain land owned by her and family in the mountains of North Carolina. But because of a 12-year-old robbery conviction where he conspired with acquaintances to rob a marijuana buyer of $4,200, he has not been able to hunt with firearms due to a lifetime ban. Since the time of the robbery conviction, Kelly’s client has matured and rehabilitated in countless ways since then, becoming a successful, certified HVAC technician, moving to South Carolina for a fresh start, rediscovering his faith, founding an HVAC company and meeting his fiancée. Kelly successfully argued ‘good cause’ to restore her client’s firearm rights, thus ending his lifetime ban. As a result, her client can participate in all the activities he’s dreamed of as an avid outdoorsman.

Her client spent many years focused on her sobriety, her work as a hairstylist, and rebuilding relationships with family. Finally, she decided she was ready to have her gun rights restored so that she could go deer hunting once again with her family, a pastime she had loved as recreation and a means of providing food for her family prior to her addiction and arrest. With strong support from friends and family who submitted glowing letters of support, Kelly was able to convince the judge to restore her client’s firearm rights despite the serious past charges.
