Let me know if you hear anything differently.
I think it depends on if it was a state felony, or a federal felony. Can't you take a state felony to court? I think a federal felony is set in stone though.
If you do go to court, I wouldn't mention anything about guns unless your lawyer says to.
As for you or your mom owning one. You can own one, but it CANNOT be in the same house as your stepfather. Even if they are locked up, they would still consider him to be in possession of them.
