You know, I'm now a parole examiner here in FL and one of my duties is to conduct investigations for restoration of civil rights. If you reside in Fl and were convicted of a felony in another state, military, or federal court, you must apply to have your rights restored in FL. FL is one of maybe 5 states in which civil rights are not automatically restored upon the completion of the sentence. This does not include the right to possess a firearm, which is a different application. There is a huge backlog of pending applications for the restoration of civil rights in FL. My advice to anyone who plans to get admitted to the FL Bar and has a felony conviction is to apply to have your rights restored ASAP.
