Deferred Adjudication

Postby sdwilson68 » Thu May 04, 2017 12:18 pm

Good morning, hopefully I am posting in the correct location. I completed deferred adjudication for burglary of a habitat in 1993 and received my CHL in 2007. I moved to Florida shortly after and let it expire because I applied and received my Florida carry license and did not plan on moving back to Texas. I ended up moving back to Texas last year and I applied again for a Texas CHL and was denied because a change in the law in 2009 makes burglary of a habitat a violent crime and therefore I am ineligible. Does anyone know if this might be addressed in the 2017 legislation or any does anyone have any other advice for me? Feel naked without it.

Why not just convert your Florida license into a non-resident license, or apply for a non-resident Florida license if your old one is expired, and not worry about it?

Texas will recognize your non-resident Florida license: http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/florida.pdf

You need to get that DA non-disclosed. Any lawyer can do it, cost starts at about $500.

Until then, your Fl license will work just fine.

Even if the DA is non-disclosed, won't the state have access to it when doing a background check?

God's forgotten, the soldier slighted.

Even if they did, it is no longer disqualifying.

Deferred adjudications are no longer disqualifying? Did that change this session?

This confuses me. If it is no longer disqualifying then why was the OP denied?

I don't think Texas LTC eligibity for people convicted of home break-ins has very high legislative priority for most gun rights organizations or legislators. I think your best option is keeping your Florida license.

No. If it's "non-disclosed". Assume that means an order of non-disclosure, which like an expungement or pardon, makes the offense non-disqualifying.
