Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney Lynne Torgerson won gun rights restoration in Kanabec County
Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney Lynne Torgerson won a gun rights restoration case in Kanabec County. Since his disqualifying offenses, Ms. Torgerson's client had gotten married, established long term stable employment, and had remained crime free. He did not use illegal drugs and never had any mental health counseling or diagnosis. Earlier in life, he had become addicted to methamphetamine. Consequently, he was convicted of approximately four (4) disqualifying felony convictions of crimes of violence. Then his criminal record ceased. After the passage of time, approximately seven (7) years, Ms. Torgerson's client wanted to get his gun rights restored. Ms. Torgerson's client lived far out in the country, he wanted to go deer and boar hunting, show his children how to hunt, and be able to scare critters, mountain lions, and coyotes, away. Having found good cause, The Honorable Stony Hiljus granted petitioner's request to restore his rights to possess firearms. Well done Ms. Torgerson. T.R.
