Would this apply even though it was 20 years ago.....
Your help in this was great. It applies to both references (Employment and Gun Right). I am trying to get a job as a corrections officer and this was one of the questions. I just want to ensure I can answer it honestly and since as I mentioned, the Public defender I had informed me of what the deferment entailed, as as mentioned, there has been no further incidents of this. I also go through background checks due to being a wrestling and bowling coach for youth and has to be done every year and my check always comes back clear.....
TY for checking in about my question I had. It appears it may have dropped off the radar screen since last Thursday, I was able to purchase a a firearm at a local Walmart. Originally it was delayed, but after 2 days, they received the paperwork to proceed with the sale.So I believe the arrest may show, but it is showing as a dismissal, no conviction. At least I hope that is is what it is saying.
Again, TY for your knowledge on the issue and for checking up.
