The client was upset that he was denied the opportunity to buy a firearm due to an erroneous background check. He retained Jeffrey Garland to “fix it”. Garland tracked the problem to a 1976 Martin County arrest for more than five grams of cannabis. At the time, that was a felony, but the records showed that it had been pled out to under five grams – which was a misdemeanor. Problem was that it was reported to FDLE as a felony. Garland collected certified dox on this 42-year-old case. The Martin County Clerk recognized the error and correctly re-reported it to FDLE, which “fixed” its records on 8/13/18. Gun rights restored!
