Folajtar v Garland - non-violent felon lifetime 2A ban


Recommended Posts



In 2011, the United States filed a criminal information in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania charging Petitioner Lisa M. Folajtar with a single count of willfully making a materially false statement on her tax returns, a felony punishable by up to three years' imprisonment and a fine up to $100,000. See 26 U.S.C. § 7206(1). Accepting responsibility for her actions, Petitioner pleaded guilty and was ultimately sentenced to three-years' probation, including three months of home confinement, a $10,000 fine, and a $100 assessment. She also paid the IRS approximately $250,000 in back taxes, penalties, and interest.


Years later, Petitioner sought to lawfully purchase and possess a handgun and long gun for self-defense within her home. Yet, because of her 2011 felony conviction, Petitioner is barred by federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1), from ever possessing a firearm.


The petition is set for conference on April 16.
