    Hi all,

    I've got a good friend from childhood who wants to get his CCW. He's got a squeaky clean CR never been in trouble with the law or anything. That is because he never got caught. He went through the young and stupid phase as everyone else does. He won't tell me exactly what he did but I think he did a few B&E's. He is afraid that if he gets fingerprinted that he might get charged with something that is years old if the places were fingerprinted. I don't know what to tell him, he's a real great guy but I told him if I was him I'd stick to just getting a Pistol permit and forget the CCW. What would y'all say?

    Thanks

    He could find out if statutes of limitations would apply, he could always talk an attorney and work on getting it resolved as well.

    I dont think most states run the fingerprints against the unsolved list but they may. Either way talk to an attorney.

    I know a guy in FL that did some car and boat stealing among other things when he was younger that recently turned in his fingerprints with his CWP application. He's a little worried.

    I remember having my house broken into when I was little, and I think they only fingerprinted the window because we knew more or less who it was, the cops knew more or less who is was, and we just needed the proof. I don't think they normally did much of the fingerprinting stuff, and I can't believe they are going to pursue BS crimes 6 years later.

    He agreed and turned his stuff in. We'll have to wait and see!

    atleast in my town the cops really dont fingerprint anything. seems they just dont like doing it or lack the knowledge to do it.

    depending on how long ago this happened there is a good chance the statute of limitations has run its course long ago.....

    unless it was an unsolved murder I don't think they'd give his prints a second thought. I'd also do what was mentioned and check the statutes of limitation. If it's not murder and over 7 years he ought to be fine.

    He should go to a few of those places he commited crimes at and send them a letter with apology and some cash. "Dear Sir: 6 yrs ago I with some friends took some tools from your garage. I am sorry and am trying to repay my debts. "
    An apology and $20 would be a good start. Then wait till statute of limitations runs out.

    One Thing Is FOR SURE~!

    Fingerprints DON'T LIE~!

    With todays technology (AFIS), fingerprints can be matched in an instant.
    And, some cases have NO statue of limitations; so they remain as "open
    cases"; murder is one example.
