Default Expunging a felony off record

Hey all, new here...
So i have a nephew that is waiting on his felony charge to be expunged (happened when he was 14 now 26), court date is this June, and I was wondering if he can legally purchase a firearm after expungement?

Btw, his felony is for "Malicious destruction of property- $1000 or more but less than $20,000".

Thank you all in advance

Thanks for the reply. I dont know much about this expungement stuff so your answer helps. Did your buddy have to go through anything after the expungement? Or did he just walk in a store and buy a firearm?

You need to consult an attorney that handles these types of cases in your jurisdiction.

Good advise!

Every state has different procedures for restoring ones rights or even get the conviction removed. You are going to have to do some leg work to find the right attorney.

After it was expunged.
He just walked in the store and bought one .
first time he had to show the his paperwork showing it was expunged but since then he has bought several definitely go through a lawyer it's worth it

If he doesn't have an attorney, shyster is a great attorney in the detroit area, and one of the legal contributors to the forum.

If it was just malicious destruction, highly unlikely it was a felony. Felons are 17 and over. Younger are juvenile offenses. Juveniles are waived to Circuit Court only for really serious stuff. Like Murder!

He had his record pulled up from the ICHAT website, and it was exactly how I wrote it. He forgot about the offense after 15+ years and decided he wanted to buy a firearm but got denied because of this incident..
