Felony Pistol Permit Charges Reduced to Non Criminal Violation

Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

In February 2016, Michael Collado was able to negotiate a favorable disposition for a client who was charged with a felony in an Ulster County Justice Court for failing to disclose a prior criminal conviction on a pistol permit application. In addition to facing the debilitating consequences of a felony conviction, the client also risked being precluded from legally possession a firearm in the state of New York. Michael Collado was able to negotiate a settlement with the Ulster County District Attorney's Office where the felony charge was reduced to a noncriminal violation and a sentence of a fine and community service was imposed. Furthermore, the client was allowed to resubmit his pistol permit application for licensing consideration.
