Wife denied CHP in Amelia County Va.
First of all, I am not asking for legal advice here, just opinions, and perhaps where to go to find pro carry attorneys.
My wife has had some legal problems in the past. She had one felony arrest as a juvenile, where the charges were dismissed, and two misdemeanor charges, the most recent in 1994. But the 1994 was a misdemeanor drug paraphernalia conviction. The judge denied her permit based on that charge. She is planning on filing a request with the court for an "Ore Tenus" hearing. Does anyone think she has a chance of getting the denial reversed, and should an attorney be retained for the hearing? Lastly, there used to be a link on one of the forums to which I belong that linked to a listing of pro 2nd Amendment lawyers by state, but now I can not locate it anywhere. The Va CHP requirements state that anyone with 2 misdemeanor convictions within the last 5 years can e denied a carry permit. However, the judge seems to be given some discretion when one of the misdemeanors is a Class I misdemeanor.
