First I wanted to say hello, and thank you for providing some good insight and information.
My story; I went out during senior year of high school, 04/1991, I was 18 then, and broke some windows with a bb gun.
I was convicted of 2 counts;
Statute Citation Literal Description Inchoate
38-21-1-A CRIMINAL DAMAGE TO PROPERTY
Disposition: GUILTY Disposition Date: 07/01/1991
SENTENCED TO RESTITUTION 07/01/1991
SENTENCED TO 100 HOUR(S) PUBLIC SERVICE 07/01/1991
SENTENCED TO 30 MONTH(S) PROBATION 07/01/1991
This was verified by ISP CHIRP report. My probation was completed successfully. Since, then I have had no criminal offenses, other than three minor traffic violations, no police contact.
I have gone 23+ years without incident. During that time I have graduated from Northwestern University 3.5 GPA, have been with the same company since 06/1994, and continue to volunteer and remain active in my church.
These offenses occurred in Lake County IL. I still remain a resident in said county as well.
I have started the process of restoring my gun rights and if any could offer advice/tips/suggestions it would be appreciated. I did retain an attorney, however I am sure some folks on here could provide valuable advice.
On a side note, and ironically, my fiance is a corrections officer at the county jail I was held at...and no that is not where we met
Additionally, her brother is now a Lt on the arresting police department, and no he wasn't there when this occurred. Crazy the way things come full circle.
Thanks in Advance
