I have been working on a post detailing Mississippi’s law regarding gun rights, expungements and voting rights; and how those rights can be restored after a criminal conviction. As I’m sure you can imagine, there are dozens of organizations devoted to helping convicted felons clear their record and re-enter society without the prejudices that follow a felony conviction. One of these organizations is the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, which I am a proud member of.
Recently, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers partnered with the Collateral Consequences Resource Center, the National Legal Aid & Defense Association, and the National HIRE Network on a new project. This project was called the “Restoration of Rights Project”.
The purpose of this project is to offer a complete guide to the law on restoration of rights following a criminal conviction in all 50 states. After reading through the site, I have to admit that they have done a better job than I ever could detailing all of the ways you can have your rights restored following a felony conviction. Since the purpose of this blog is to give you the best information possible, instead of posting my original article on restoration of rights, I will post a link to THIS WEBSITE.
I encourage anyone who has been convicted of a crime in Mississippi or Federally to take the time to explore this site. It will not replace a one on one consultation with an experienced attorney, but it can help answer many questions that you may have.
As always, if you have any questions or want to speak one on one with an attorney regarding which post-conviction option is right for you, feel free to contact us anytime.
