My question involves criminal law for the state of: New York - Sufflok County
New member here. I am 49 years old. I have lived in NY my whole life except for 18 months in Lousiana. When I was 18 back in 1977 i had just moved to La. and was sitting in the back seat of a car of a guy I had just met. He pulled into an apartment complex and pulled up to some guy and handed him something , and one month later I was arrested for Distribution of a controled substance 1 gram of PCP. I pleaded guilty instead on going to trial, plea bargin. the sentence was 18 months in a state prison. I was placed on probation. 2 year active probation, and $100 fine. I moved back to NY and was released from my probation early for good behavior. Fast forward 32 years, full grown adult ,family home, wife, career, dog. I wasnt to apply for my pistol permit to own a handgun and go to the shooting range for target practice. I have not had so much as a parking ticket in 32 years. I have heard of things like restoration of gun rights and relief from disability. Getting my pistol permit is very important to me. I do not even know if it would show up from La. 32 years ago. I have my Pistol application but i'm afraid to fill it out because I don't want to get rejected. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have been suffering for this for 32 years, Enough is enough.
