Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Can you get a fire arm with a f3 child endangerment ?
A: A person with a any felony conviction on the criminal history would be required to answer "yes" to the question about criminal convictions on the ATF form used when purchasing a firearm. This would preclude someone from buying, and would cause a failure to pass the PICS instant background check.
Q. Do I have a felony?
A: If someone is convicted as an adult, the conviction will appear on a criminal history regardless of whether the plea was guilty or no contest.

If an offense happened before the age of 18, it may have been processed as a juvenile adjudication of delinquency, even if the case did not close until after the age of 18. An old juvenile adjudication may have been expunged from the record, depending on whether the intervening time has been crime free.

If the conviction was for a lesser offense due to a plea agreement, the record may have been covered by the Pennsylvania Clean Slate Law, which makes some misdemeanor convictions invisible on employment background checks.
