What Rights Can Be Restored?
It’s not uncommon for those convicted of a felony to feel as though
they are being treated like second-class citizens. In addition to the
loss of rights, a felony conviction can make it tough to get a job, obtain
certain professional licenses, and even find a place to live.
With the help of our criminal defense attorney, you may be able to restore:
- Your right to vote
- Your right to hold public office
- Your right to possess a firearm
- Your right to serve as a juror
Who Qualifies for Restoration of Rights?
Typically, individuals who have been convicted of one felony in Arizona
will automatically have their rights restored after they complete their
probation, or after they have received an absolute discharge. However,
it is always best to file an application to restore your rights to ensure
that they are actually restored. Individuals who have been convicted of
two or more felonies will need to file an application to be considered
for restoration of rights. Those who have been convicted of certain violent
crimes and crimes against children will not be able to recover their gun rights.
