I've been in appeals over one year with them and havnt heard anything but them saying it's being looked at but I call bull**** on that. They probably havnt even touched my paperwork since they signed the the delivery of the certified mail I sent them.

Hi All, 

 

I have a situation pertaining to my FOID application being denied. I applied back in May of 2016 and was denied. I have procrastinated the appeal, and have lost the letter from ISP stating why I was denied. I've searched forums and ISPFSB.com but cannot locate anyone who has solved the issue. 

 

Does anyone know what the process is to obtain a copy of my denial notice? Someone on Reddit recommended looking into an FOIA request, but hoping to get additional opinions before proceeding. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Another problem I see with the FOID appeal process, they do not acknowledge receipt of the appeal and they do not change status to show appeal under review.

Heard back finally from the ISP.

 

"Mr. Flavin,

The Illinois State Police has received documents for the appeal of your FOID application denial. Our records indicate that you were adjudicated delinquent on 11/17/04 for Class 3 Theft and Class 4 Knowingly Damage to Property. Per your denial letter and pursuant to 430 ILCS 65/10, the Director of the Illinois State Police (ISP) cannot grant relief for this type of offense, however, the FOID Act does provide that you may petition, in writing, the circuit court in your county of residence when at least 10 years has passed since the adjudication of delinquency.  If and when the circuit court has given you relief from the firearm prohibitor, please submit a copy of the court's order to the Firearms Services Bureau for review."

 

 

Looks like I really should have put an effort forward in getting my juvenile record expunged, that will be next on my list, had thought letters from my family friends and the employees of my company would have done the trick :( I Guess 16 years isn't enough time

 

However I was denied on 2 factors, and being in a psych ward was not mentioned here, could they have forgotten to put that?

I did get an all clear from a psych doctor that wrote to the ISP that I was not a harm to others or myself.

This goes beyond expungement. It's an adversarial proceeding. Well, so is expungement but the AG's office will fight you tooth and nail on this one. Your best bet would be to search the forum for others who have had their rights restored by a circuit court (or appellate court). Would retain a lawyer as there's not much room for screwing up.
