Denied Conceal Carry permit, how to go about the Appeal process?
I moved to Cincinnati Ohio from Florida back in April 2012. I applied for my permit 49 days ago. I called today & I was told that i got denied:mad: in Ohio for my CCL. I'm confused because I recently was able to buy 2 guns with this last 45+ days. I haven't received the denial letter as of yet.
I was told I was denied because I had previous charge, (but that charge never turned into a conviction due to it being -Adjudication Withheld felony in Florida)
(The charge was not for any type of drugs, violence, or anything dealing with a child, or weapons). (Adjudication Withheld means a person is not found guilty legally by the court. The whole premise of an adjudication withheld judgment is that it enables, upon completion of the probation requirements, for an individual to clear his or her name for the charges brought against them. In essence, the adjudication withheld process simply defers punishment, a guilty ruling & a permanent status on
the individualís record. Upon completion, the individual will be cleared of all charges and will be free from punishment. By withholding the adjudication of guilt the
court is not convicting you of the crime. If the offense is a felony you will not lose your civil rights. Having the adjudication of guilt withheld also leaves you eligible
to have your criminal history record sealed or expunged).
When I choose to go the route I did (in reference to the case) I went the "cheaper" route of settling with Adjudication Withheld instead of going through with a full hearing w/ a jury because of what Adjudication Withheld meant... I can legally check "NO" on Applications that ask if you're a convicted felon
I'm so confused :confused:on what happened. I haven't had any issues before in reference to the out come of backgrounds checks.
So if this is the case, why was I denied & what should i do?
