Long time reader but this is my 1st post. I have a questions and maybe someone here can lead me in the right direction? I am frustrated with the appeal process as I am sure many here are. So long story short. Got into an altercation with step-son due to his immaturity. He calls police, I get arrested for domestic battery, do diversion program (nice way of saying probation), do the anger management, drug testing etc.I make all of my appearance court dates jump through all the hoops and get the charge dismissed.
So, I send in all the proper paperwork for both my FOID and CCL to be appealed. 2 weeks for the FOID to be renewed, still waiting on my CCL. Here is a list of the timeline:
3/29/2014 – CCL issued
1/21/2015- Arrested for Domestic Battery
1/29/2015 – Court ordered anger management start
06/01/2016 – Finished court order anger management counseling
06/09/2016 – Case dismissed Finished diversion program
8/15/2016 – Sent paperwork for FOID Appeal
8/20/2016 – Sent paperwork for CCL Appeal
8/30/2016 – Email with FOID approval and 1st CCL update
01/18/2017 – 1st email inquire to CCL – Its being forwarded to the appeal section
05/05/2017 – 2nd email inquiry to CCL – Response: Its under appeal
10/04/2017 – 3rd email inquire to CCL – Response: Its being reviewed no time frame given
01/05/2018 – 4th email inquiry to CCL – No response at all
09/31/2018 – 5th email inquire to CCL – No response at all.
I have called on multiple occasions. No answers from a human being. Always bounces to voicemail or says that voicemail is full. The e-mail responses that I did recieve states that "there is no timeline or deadline for appeals, we will get back to you when it is either approved or rejected.
I do not understand why my FOID was renewed so quick but no my CCL.
What if any are my options?
Excuse any grammar, it is not my strong suit.
Thank you in advance,
