    Don't post anything more and get yourself a lawyer. NOW.

    If you're going to keep this topic up top, reply with "to the top". Only give information your lawyer says is ok (should you wish to).

    Also, ask one of the moderators to move this thread to your state's forum.

    Good luck.

    It does seem rather harsh, given the circumstances. I guess you have to ask yourself if you are willing to gamble on an unpredictable jury. I think I would be inclined to keep my head down and not make waves for the length of the probation. Have you asked anybody how this will affect your ability to buy other guns?

    Convenient circumstances without the alleged perpetrators. "Felony with misdemeanor sentencing"? Which, in this jurisdiction, determines Second Amendment disability? A is A, or not.

    If you plead guilty to any felony, even with some reduced sentencing agreement in place, your gun rights are gone (unless/until you get some future expunction or pardon). Definitely go over the fine print of any such agreement with your lawyer and consider the long-term ramifications. You may qualify for some kind of diversion/alternative sentencing where you enter a quilty plea, but they reduce or drop the charge after going through whatever hoops, but again, you'd need to go over that with the lawyer, and your rights would definitely be affected in the meantime, until it's fully resolved.

    Lousy situation all around- good luck.
