Misdemeanor Charge & Citizenship

Post by scott72289 » Fri, 10 Apr 2009 11:32 am

I've recently been charged with firing a firearm within town limits & have a chance to appeal it in superior court.

If it were to stay on my record what are the chances of somebody who wants Singaporean citizenship via investor route? (1.5 million)

I have to know by monday, thanks!

Nobody as touched this all weekend. I really don't have any anecdotal evidence to offer either, but I sure a number here have looked at it. You deserve a response if for no other reason than to let you know someone has actually seen the post. Considering how everything has a price here, your investment may overcome any past. I really don't know. The worst they can do is say no I suppose.

There's actually not enough information to make a SWAG even.

For example:

a) What nationality are you?
b) Did you legally own the gun?
c) Were you permitted?
d) Was your crime simply discharging the weapon inside a city limit or were there other charges?
e) How old are you?
f) Have you any other blots on your record?
g) Why wait until Friday at 11:30 to ask a question for which you need an answer by Monday?

My guess: If you have an otherwise clean record, you are 'mature' (above 35), have no other issues other than the discharge, and have the money, you'll probably get in... just a SWAG.

But, if you have an appeal I'd take it.

OK, your IP address says you are in Apex, North Carolina.

NC is a concealed carry state (with a permit) and thus, you can legally own handguns.

Apex is probably like most cities... can't shoot off a gun for no reason... was it a new year's celebration?
