    Carry laws after court precedings.

    I had to volunterly give up my permit after an indictment was brought to me because I was involved in an accident where a man lost his life. I had plead guilty to wreckless vehicular homicide but was not charged since I was awarded judicial diversion. The judge said I was not giving up my right to vote or posess any firearms since I am on probation now for three yrs. However, my attorney doesn't think I can. I live in TN and the laws are not strict down here. I have no criminal background. Does anyone know how I can get it back?

    What can I say that your attorney does not know? If you have no faith in him get another attorney or second opinion.

    Legal questions should be answered by lawyers. If you don't like what yours has to say, get a second opinion from another one.

    The best thing you can do is find an attorney that specializes in matters like this. Contact some local CCW trainers or training centers for a reference, they may be aware of a local attorney that could assist you.

    At the very least, you will have to wait until your probation is over to get a permit...if they allow it.

    You should be OK, but one never can tell with the legal system and all the fine print that goes with it.

    I'm no lawyer, and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express, so you should ask a lawyer.

    A Tennessee lawyer who specializes in firearms related legal issues is who you need to be talking to.

    No lawyer here either. Sounds like probation. Consider yourself lucky. If you don't care for your lawyer, find another one.

    If the judge says your fine, I would think you are fine. However IANAL
