Idaho Domestic Violence Convictions and Gun Rights

A conviction for misdemeanor domestic violence can have serious consequences beyond the penalties imposed by the Court. Do not plead guilty without consulting with an experienced domestic violence attorney.

Lifetime Loss Of Firearm Rights.

Most people know that felony convictions result in the loss of the right to own or possess firearms. Less well known is that federal law makes it illegal for anyone who has plead guilty or been found guilty of a misdemeanor domestic violence crime to possess, transport, purchase, or own a firearm.

This is a lifetime ban - the ban does not end when probation expires - and restoring gun rights can be difficult after the fact. Many people plead guilty in misdemeanor domestic violence cases not knowing that this is the case.
