CCL denied because of DUI Treatment, How do i re-apply after the 5 years is up?


Recommended Posts

Following this thread. I’m basically in the same boat. My FOID was revoked due to court supervision because of a DUI, leading to the denial of my CCL. This was in 2019. Supervision ended in mid-2020. I’m not sure what paperwork I would need to begin an appeal. I’ve reached out to a few lawyers the past month and unfortunately got zero responses.

Either I got lucky or I had a good lawyer. I made the choice to drive after a few too many, and got a DUI in 2018. I also had a loaded firearm in the vehicle(my mistake due to a misinterpretation of the law). I am still currently on court supervision and haven't had any repercussions because of it. I've also bought a few firearms since that arrest. From what I gather, you can answer no to the question about receiving alcohol treatment, since the classes you take are DUI re-education classes and not treatment. I can't help you with your cases, but I feel it's important to share my story.

As I understand it, you had a good lawyer. Supervision is run by the Parole Division of the Department of Corrections, which typically subjects people on supervision (misdemeanor) to the same conditions as people on parole (felony), which means no guns allowed. A good lawyer will got that condition, and probably several others, eliminated. Merely average lawyers tend to let it slip past them.

But I made it very clear I wasn't willing to give up my 2A rights.

 

Don't take this the wrong way but how the heck did you give THEM that ultimatum?  Like what were they going to say "no we don't agree with that we want our DUI back", seems like they could have just said "well it is what it is you got the DUI not us".

Possibly. I have no special conditions for my supervision. (Except don't get in trouble for 2 years.) But I made it very clear I wasn't willing to give up my 2A rights. And our DA was willing to comply on that notion.

I should’ve done the same thing. When I was signing the paperwork, I saw where it said I couldn’t own a firearm. I thought about it for a second but decided I didn’t want to cause any problems so I just signed away. Been having MAJOR regrets since lol.

Not the wrong way at all, my lawyer and our states attorney are pretty pro 2A and this was during the height of the pandemic. Plus my lawyer was going willing to drag it out forever if he needed.
