  • Client Goes to Gun Range on the Same Day Kelly Restores his Rights

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client suffered a lifetime loss of his gun rights when the law changed from a ten year prohibition after being convicted of a Fifth Degree Marijuana Possession charge in Ramsey County. This lifetime loss of rights hit her client hard, as he had always been an avid outdoorsman, hunting with his family at their cabin and going to the gun range with friends and family to practice. He also stood to inherit his great-grandfather’s Winchester rifle. Kelly convinced the judge that her client had rehabilitated. Her client was overjoyed, going to the gun range with friends for the first time in many years on the very day the court issued the judge’s order restoring his rights.

  • Kelly Expunges Records of Client Convicted of Disorderly Conduct

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client was the victim in a long-term abusive marriage. When she finally decided to stand up for herself and fight back, her husband was able to turn the tables on her when police arrived by telling police she had assaulted him. She was arrested and charged with domestic assault in Ramsey County. She pled guilty the next morning at her bail hearing and was convicted of disorderly conduct. Thankfully, the incident helped Kelly’s client gain the courage to finally leave her husband. Eventually, she retained Kelly to help finally put the incident behind her. Kelly was able to successfully demonstrate the elements of her client’s situation in court and document the abuse that she suffered. The judge not only granted the expungement so that Kelly’s client can finally put the incident and her abusive marriage behind her, but the judge also made a finding that her client was situated to that of a victim, affording her the legal status of being restored to the status she held prior to the arrest.

  • Second Amendment Rights Restored for Client Granted Permit to Purchase but Denied Permit to Carry

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client came to her confused after having been granted a permit to purchase by the Eagan Police Department but denied a permit to carry by the Dakota County Sheriff. Upon review of his records, Kelly found he had been convicted in Isanti County for Felony Third Degree Possession of a Controlled Substance, leading to a lifetime loss of gun rights, meaning  the sheriff’s permit to carry denial was correct. Kelly drafted and filed her client’s restoration documents and argued before the judge that her client had rehabilitated after becoming sober and establishing a successful career. The judge agreed with Kelly, restoring  her client’s rights so that he can deer hunt once again and inherit his grandfather’s heirloom firearms.

  • Kelly Restores Gun Rights of Client Arrested for Murder for Hire of a Police Officer Scheme

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client retained her to restore his gun rights so that he can manage his firearm store and weapon-training business. Earlier in life, he had been arrested for a murder-for-hire plot for allegedly attempting to hire a hit man to kill a police officer while her client working as a confidential informant. He ultimately pled guilty to Felony Terroristic Threats, leading to a lifetime ban on possessing firearms. Kelly mounted a vigorous offense to help her client regain his rights, arguing that he had rehabilitated and that there was good cause to restore his rights. She also dug deep to find old records related to the crime to recount the facts and explain her client was young and had not been truly serious about having the officer killed at the time. Despite the strong objections of the prosecutor and the appearance of the law enforcement officer victim and his family in court opposing the restoration, the judge agreed with Kelly and restored her client’s rights so that he may now manage his gun store.
