Prohibited person would this constitute
A friend of mine used a pistol to stave off an attack by an intruder. She was arrested and charged with multiple felonies. Her attorney, a noted Arizona 2nd amendment lawyer and libertarian has negotiated a plea arrangement. He claims that she will not loose her gun rights. Following is a summary of the agreement:
She pleads guilty to a felony, receives a years probation and if she successfully completes the probation she "could" have the conviction reduced to a misdemeanor. both the felony and misdemeanor carry a possible sentence of more than one year.
My understanding is that this will disqualify her from ownership/possession of a firearm. What are your thoughts.
PS I intend to do a full posting on the situation once the case has been completed. Please refrain from asking about the specifics of the case.
