Q. Deferred prosecution in 2006. Charge was dissmissed & was to be expunged. Why did it show up on a background check?
A: Unfortunately, when cases are dismissed after a deferred period, it is still considered to be a "conviction" because there was a finding of guilt. Although the case has been dismissed it may still show up on background checks as a dismissed charge. How your case would be handled is dependent on the underlying circumstances. If it was dismissed after a deferral, you will probably need to vacate and seal the charge. Since it is also involving DSHS/DCYF, you will want to make sure that portion is handled as well. I would recommend consulting with an attorney to see what needs to be completed. I wish you the best of luck going forward!
Q. Trying to have my over 15 year old records sealed and esponge so I can own a fire arm again to protect my family and my
A: Restoration of your firearm rights, vacating, sealing or expunging your record can all be done in Washington State, but definitely depends upon your history. You can complete the firearm restoration in either the county where the offense was committed, or the jurisdiction you are currently living. You can complete it yourself, but I would recommend contacting an attorney to at least review your history and check eligibility. Good luck to you!
Q. can i own a firearm if i have stayed out of trouble from 3/7/2006 with a vucsa : possession w/intent to manufacture
A: You cannot possess a firearm unless you have had that right restored by a court of law. However, if you have no other history, based upon those charges and the length of time, you may very well be eligible to restore your rights pursuant to RCW 9.41.047 Restoration of possession rights. Best of luck to you!
