My wife and I took our required classes and applied for CCL at the same time in january of 2016- she received her CCl in the mail in a few weeks, and shortly thereafter I got a letter that my request was denied, and my foid card was now revoked, the reason given was "fugitive from justice". I followed the instructions in the letter and surrendered my foid to the local police station, and travelled to TN to appear in court to address the outstanding warrant I had there. I spent 21 days in jail, paid a fee to the probation office, and asked for some sort of document that I could show to prove that I had taken care of this issue, from both the county courthouse, and the attorney that represented me. Neither could provide documentation for me, so I went home without it. I appealed the ccl denial when I got back home, in march of 2016, and it's been under appeal ever since. I'm not sure what action I can take to make any progress towards reinstatement or even find out how much more of a wait is necessary. A friend of mine mentioned this forum, and after reading some similar threads, I've written my own.

Hi,

You haven’t said what the crime was, if it was expunged. Some crimes make you ineligible.

Contact MollyB I’m sure she can help

Waddatoe,

 

You did not say what charge / conviction caused you to spend 21 days in jail.  It could be that the charge requires you to wait for a certain period.  It could also be that the charge could be a permanent disqualifier.  You can get a records from the court clerk on the disposition of your case.  Those records should be available now.  you might want to contact an Illinois attorney familiar with the FCCA.

 

Good Luck.

Thanks for the replies. The charge was violation of probation.

 

To elaborate, I got a dui in TN in 2003. I got several traffic citations along with the citation for dui. I paid the citations off, but was apparently required to physically check in weekly in a probation office in TN. I did not do this as I lived a few hundred miles away. I did not realize there was a warrant for my arrest because of this until I applied for the CCL here in IL in 2016. When I was made aware of it, I travelled to TN and appeared in court to address the issue. It resulted in the 21 day stay in county jail, and a "probation fee" which I paid at the court offices in TN before returning home. I'm not a criminal and I'm somewhat confused by the court process, but the attorney I hired in TN to represent me for this issue assured me that the 21 day jail stay and the payment of the "probation fee" set me right with the law.

Waddatoe,

 

This is from the ISPFSB website FAQ on qualifications for a CCL.  This is what hung you up.

 

  • Have not been convicted or found guilty in Illinois or any other state of:
    • A misdemeanor involving the use or threat of physical force or violence to any person within the last 5 years
    • 2 or more violations related to driving while under the influence of alcohol, other drug or drugs, intoxicating compound or compounds, or any combination thereof, within the last 5 years
  • Not be the subject of a pending arrest warrant, prosecution, or proceeding for an offense or action that could lead to disqualification
  • Not have been in residential or court-ordered treatment for alcoholism, alcohol detoxification, or drug treatment within the last 5 years

Thanks OneGun,

 

In 2016, when I appealed the denial of CCL, the DUI conviction was thirteen years old. I understand that the pending warrant caused an issue, so I went to TN and straightened that issue out two years ago. I don't understand what has caused the appeal to go on unanswered for this length of time, now that the cause of the problem has been addressed.

Agreed this is Illinois. They will take your rights faster than you can imagine but take their sweet a** time in either issuing or reinstating your rights.

Did you ever submit verification to the ISP that the pending warrant for you arrest has been solved?  If not, you need to request a copy of the court disposition from the court clerk or circuit court where you cleared up the warrant.

Thank you for the reply, Molly B. 

 

     I'll contact them and ask again now that you've told me what to ask for. I'll update this thread as well.
