  • Kelly Keegan Has Firearm Returned to Client

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly Keegan’s client had his firearm seized by the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Police Department.

The Police Department promptly complied and the firearm was given back to her client.

  • Kelly Keegan Restores Firearm Rights for Felony Theft Case

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client was charged with and convicted of Felony Theft after he walked out of a store with a rifle without purchasing it. The offense was an isolated period in the client’s otherwise law-abiding life. The client was a veteran, Eagle Scout, and father. 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.

  • Kelly Keegan Expunges Disorderly Conduct Records

    Charge(s): 

    Kelly’s client was arrested in the City of Anoka nearly thirty years earlier for Disorderly Conduct. Though court records of the case had since been destroyed, the conviction still showed up on background checks. This continually raised questions when the client, a business owner, applied for various licenses. Kelly determined which agencies still held records of the arrest and conviction and sought an expungement for the client. After she was able to get the prosecutor to agree to the petition, the expungement was granted.

  • Kelly Keegan Negotiates Continuance for Dismissal

    Charge(s): 

    When Kelly’s client got into a fight at a bar, he was later charged with Misdemeanor Fifth Degree Assault, Misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct, and Misdemeanor Trespassing. Kelly’s client maintained that he was not the instigator. Kelly investigated the case thoroughly and communicated extensively with the prosecutor. After several negotiations, Kelly was able to secure for her client a Continuance for Dismissal, meaning that after one year of no same or similar offenses, the charges would be dismissed.

  • Gun Rights Restored for Juvenile Theft of Motor Vehicle Conviction

    Charge(s): 

    When he was just 15 years old, Kelly’s client borrowed his friend’s mother’s car without her permission. When he got in an accident in the car, the mother reported it stolen. Kelly’s client was charged with Felony Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and was later adjudicated delinquent of this offense. At the time, Kelly’s client did not understand that this adjudication would result in the loss of his firearm rights, finding out nearly 20 years later when he was denied a permit to carry. Shocked, he sought Kelly’s help. Kelly presented to the prosecutor and Court a strong case, demonstrating that her client was a veteran, a union man, and a father who posed no safety risk to the public. The Court agreed, granting the client’s petition without a hearing, and the client’s gun rights were restored.
