What is the definition of a felony?
A felony is a more serious crime than a misdemeanor. Throughout these gun law pages, we will refer to laws that make it illegal for someone convicted of a felony to have a gun. A felony under Wyoming state law is a crime that is punishable by death or by a prison sentence of more than one year.1
If you are unsure if the abuser was convicted of a felony, you might want to talk to the prosecutor who handled the criminal case against the abuser to find out or go to the courthouse and search the conviction records.
