I'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15

I'm applying for a concealed weapons permit in Colorado. 15 years ago I was arrested, for 3rd degree assult was on probation did what the courts asked of me, then the case was dropped. I had an attorney get my records sealed. I know they do an FBI and a CBI (Colorado Bureau of Investigation) but that would limit me from getting my license would it???JA: Have charges been filed? Is there a prior criminal record?Customer: I was charged with 3rd degree assault Misdemeanor, it was a DV ordeal. but since it was my first offense, I was put on probation for 2 years, I only did 1 year of probation due to good behavior and everything was dropped. About 3 years after that even I went into the Military as well, and I'm still in. I haven't been arrested since for anything.JA: In what state did this occur?Customer: ColoradoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just didn't want to be disappointed if I was denied. But I work for the Department of Defense full time and reservist part time, you'd think I wouldn't have been able to come into the Military.

I am in a very upsetting situation. A few months earlier I

Hello,JA: Hi. What is your issue regarding?Customer: I am in a very upsetting situation. A few months earlier I had used my fiancees UBER account (with his explicit permission) for rides totaling about $600. When he was reviewing the receipts that were emailed to him a few weeks after these charges were made, he realized that the incorrect card was charged. The Co-Editor of his publishing company had given him her card information to use for his Uber rides relating to work activities. When I ordered the Uber rides, it automatically selected the last card used without showing me that there were in fact two cards on file. When we realized the mistake we contacted her immediately and she said it was fine and that she would contact the company to reverse the charges made on her account and apply them to his card. Now it is about a month and a half later, and due to a series of outlandish and harassing emails and phone calls both to myself and him inspired by her confession of undying love to him and her new goal of "ruining my life" to get me out of the picture (so he can realize she is actually his dream woman...mind you, he has been explicit that he has never and will never have any romantic feelings towards her) her and I are now on more than rocky terms. Yesterday she emailed us both to inform him and I that she would be pressing charges due to the fact that I used her card without her permission. No amount of reasoning with her will persuade her that we can handle this without the involvement of the authorities. I was ready to reimburse her the funds, however, when I contacted Uber they informed me the charges are being refunded/reimbursed to her, so I don't see how it is justifiable to expect me to pay her as well. Even though this was a very honest mistake and no other charges have ever been made to her card, can she actually cause me legal repercussions? It should be noted that she bought me $1000 worth of Christmas gifts a few weeks after informing her of the charges and a few weeks before losing her mind and decided to try to have me charged with a crime.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I live in CT but she resides in New JerseyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: not that I can think of
