My name is***** have lived in Bellingham Wa since 2006. Prior to this I lived In orange County California.
In 1970 when I was 18 years old I was arrested for burglary. In the two subsequent trials
I was only convicted of petty theft
and malicious mischief.
After I turned 21 years old I petitioned the court
to have the record expunged and it was set aside and dismissed per 1203.4 PC on 05/24/1974.
I have been unable to find any records in any court houses or police stations.
Over the years I have purchased a number of firearms in the state of California and have also accumulated 4 permits to carry concealed in different states. I have one in my present state of residency.
I have been denied by the NICS check twice now even though I am able to carry concealed.
In response to my appeal I was told that the DOJ of Ca has a record from the Anaheim Police department showing that I was convicted of misdemeanor
burglary. As I stated before I have been unable to find any records in the County of Orange as misdemeanors are not kept after 7 years. The Wa state FBI said Washington considers that a felony thus the denial.
Is there anything I can do? The records are bogus and I am being held hostage. All the while I can carry a gun
in over 25 states but cannot purchase one in my own state.
