I have a few questions here:
Back in 98 or 99, I plead guilty to misdemeanor reckless endangerment. I don't know what class that falls in to, but the only other charge I've ever plead guilty to was public intoxication.
I just paid court cost on the Pub Intox and walked. For the Misd, I did 7 days waiting on a bond hearing and after all the flea bargaining, got 60 days of work release and probation. I've done my time and paid up everything I owe, and have not been in anymore trouble since.
I recently tried to purchase a gun, but was denied by the TBI background check. I am a legal gun owner and had a lot of guns before this charge that I still own now. Why would I be denied a gun purchase with no felonies, no domestic violence, and just what is stated above?
Furthermore, I think this misdemeanor is keeping me from a lot of jobs I've applied for since I have been totally honest and gave them the info. Is there a way to get this expunged so that I can move on with life and earn the living I deserve?
I make $8.60 an hr and can't even get full time hours at the job I have now and all the ones I applied for, I passed all testing, reference checks, drug tests, and physicals, but after criminal background checks, I don't get the job.
