Based on my reading of the applicable law (Title 18, United States Code, Section 922(g)(9)), I believe the restriction only applies to convictions that meet the definition of domestic violence. ┬áIf you successfully completed a pre-trial intervention, it sounds like you were not convicted…. therefore the law would not apply to you.
