Default Help! My Friend Was Denied by the DOJ...

Hello Calguns hive mind,

I have a friend who was recently denied by the DOJ when he tried to buy a stripped lower receiver. A few years ago, he was involved in an altercation at a bar in which he was picked up and thrown head-first into the ground and knocked unconscious. The bar management says that he picked up one of those poles that holds up the velvet rope (the kind you see at movie theaters) and swung it at one of the bouncers. He denies this and I believe him (I did not witness the fight), but the bar charged him with Assault with a Deadly Weapon.

Apparently the prosecution couldn't prove that my friend actually attacked the bouncer, so they worked out a deal where he would serve 1 year of probation and the bar would drop the charges against him. My friend completed the probation quite some time ago and so there should be no charge on his record, let alone a conviction for anything.

What can he do to get this cleared up? He's pretty bummed out because he already bought a sweet BCM midlength upper and everything else he needs to build an OLL-based AR15. Does he need to lawyer up or is there anything else he can do? Thanks in advance everyone!
