I just received my response back from the Utah BCI about my application for a CCW permit. I was declined the permit because of a petty theft conviction on my record about 4-5 years ago that I had totally forgotten about.
Now supposedly I could appeal the decision but whether or not it would do any good is beyond me.
Frankly the conviction was a long time ago, and to spare to many details I happened to be with a bad person at a bad time, in a store where he happened to be stealing unknowingly and I got a free ride in a police car too. Lets just say there are times you should spring for a lawyer...

So bottom line: Should I pursue my attemtpt to get one, if is it a fruitless endeavor because I will continue to be denied appeals?

How do you "forget" you're a convicted criminal?

quite easily... especially because I didn't actually do anything wrong short of be with a bad person who was unbeknownst to me. Just slipped my mind and I even freaked when I got the denial because I thought someone somewhere had screwed up. I quite literally blanked on the whole darn thing.

If you didn't do anything wrong, how is it then, that you have a conviction? Bad lawyer? Did you agree to a plea???

Inquiring minds want to know...

remember in my first post when I said there are times you should spring for a lawyer?

Well I knew I had done anything, so I didn't get a lawyer. Imagine my suprise when the over-zealous city attorney charged me along with the actually guilty person. By then I was fairly screwed and pleaded no contest to the charge being young and naive of the legal system.
