My question involves criminal records for the state of: WA
Hi there, first time poster here,
I'll just get right into it, when i was 17 I was convicted of Juvenile 2nd Degree Robbery (Strong Armed, Class B) and stripped of all my rights to own firearms and what not, i know this is considered a violent crime, but I myself didn't actually have anything to do with the robbery, I was tagged as an accessory because the people i was with decided to rob someone.
Not a day has gone by that i haven't regretted the actions i made that day, and pretty much ever since then i have been on the straight and narrow. No convictions whatsoever (other than traffic violations for speeding, etc, etc.)
It is my only arrest EVER, never arrested or convicted of anything else.
I am now 22 and my felony has been nothing but a hindrance on me getting anywhere and now i would like to purchase a firearm, and have really no money for lawyers and I am trying to find a way to get my record expunged, or even if i am eligible for an expunge. It has been 5 years since my date of conviction as of the beginning of April.
Basically i am just trying to find out what my options are in the way of getting this off my record without paying for a lawyer or anything like that, or even plausible ideas you may have that aren't expunging my record.
I would like to know what the qualifications are for getting an expunge or how to go about getting a CPL under my current circumstances. My main concern is just being able to own firearms, they are a giant passion of mine and have been since childhood, and i hate not being able to go hunting with friends and family or even just to the range.
Thank you in advance for all your help and feel free to PM me for any more info you might need that could help you determine what my best course of action would be.
