Out of state Felony Conviction Expunged.

Postby Desrd » Fri, 23 Aug 2019 14:31:14

I received my first an only conviction in the State of New Jersey about 12 years ago for possession of a firearm without a permit. This year my conviction was expunged by the courts in New Jersey and my rights restored. My attorney said it could take up to six months for the State and Federal databases to be updated.

Here is my question. I wanted to go to a firearm shop here in Virginia and have them run my background check to see if I would be prevented from purchasing a firearm. A friend told me that he would be concerned that if it came back denied that I would possibly end up facing charges.

Does anyone have insight on this? and how I can keep from inadvertently getting myself in trouble by doing some process or procedure incorrectly?

Congratulations on your rights being restored!

Unfortunately, I can't answer your question, but you might try making a phone call to John Pierce. He might be able to tell you how to check your status or other plan to help get what you need.

Wait for your lawyer to say it's ok or you can start writing checks to him again. Know you are eager. Let him say when!!!!
