Re: felony charge
Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is a class 6 felony/punishment may be one to five years. However there is mandatory time where the felony was a violent one. Then the minimum mandatory term is 5 years. If not a violent felony, then two years is the mandatory time.
The law can be found in Section 18.2-308.2 of the Va. Code.
