I want to aplly for a CHL permit and need to know if I qualify to have this paraphnelia ticket expunged, and if I am able to purchase a handgun if unable to have this expunged?

Good morning,

I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.

Under Ohio law, only a first time offender is eligible for an expungement. A person with two convictions is not eligible to expunge either of the convictions. The expungement of the first conviction must be completed before the second conviction. Convictions from other jurisdictions will disqualify the expungement applicant as well.

I wish you the best this holiday season.
