    Unless a M1 crime has a specific different(and lower) penalty, any M1 is punishable by 5 years in prison. Under federal law, any state misdemeanor that has a max possible punishment that exceeds 2 years is prohibiting.

    ANY level of misdemeanor of domestic violence is prohibiting by federal law. ..ANY.

    Some lawyers don't fill in their clients entirely of the ins and outs of high misdemeanors.

    A single DUI in the 60s and you are prohibited for life. Oh and Drag Racing, too. Both were misdemeanors but had max sentence of 3 years...
