this seems to be a recurring theme in Illinois these days

What county do you live in, in Illinois?

Well, Damn, unfortunately it doesn't look like dupage county makes court records viewable online, like Champaign County Circuit Clerk does...

http://www.dupageco.org/CourtClerk/3018/


I was going to suggest searching for yourself in the DuPage county circuit clerk...you can click the above link though and still go in there during regular business hours and do your own search.

You might also start by gettng an official background check on yourself from the FBI...

Here's a good starting point.

http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/background-checks/

If you can find the error and get it fixed yourself, then you can avoid paying an attorney to do it for you. If, however, you find out that there is no burglary charge on your record, my first step would be to contact the Illinois State Police directly 217-782-7980 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CST Monday through Friday, explain to them what's going on,t hat you have a copy of your criminal record for the FBI (or a lack of one, ideally) and see how things go from there.

Might still require an attorney, but I'm always for doing things on my own as much as I can, I've settled more than one case on my own behalf...successfully sued an old employer of my wife for back pay at her job (he refused to pay her when she turned in her resignation, and he tried to claim his employment contract said he could) well, we won that one pretty easily, despite his pompous ass of a lawyer making a fool of his client in the court room.

Though a lawyer isn't always obsolete, you still can handle most of your own legal representation yourself...it just requires a lot of preparation, dedication, and research...but it pays off in the end...sort of like replacing your own fuel pump or alternator.

This isn't legal advice, just my opinion on what I would do if I were in your shoes...

If it were that easy, I'd leave in a heart beat. You find me a job in Texas that pays near what I make here, with the promise of job security that I have here, and I'm gone.

AK,

I agree with the rest! Contact the NRA first regarding your situation. The Illinois FOID card issue is in fact a bunch of BS. For those of you who are not aware of it. If an Illinois resident goes to a gun show for example. They have to show this BS Card before they are allowed to pick a weapon up and look at it! "Yes this is a fact!" Of course what should we expect out of a state that is responsible for Obama, Daley and Blagojevich! Doesn't take a mental giant to figure out it is "Corruption" And the poor Illinois citizens are subjected to this in every area including a FOID Card!
All a part of the continual harassment by the anti gun folks.
They have also been known to follow Illinois citizens to Indiana gun shows in an attempt to arrest them when the returned to Illinois with weapons.
As the security guard in Illinois did someone needs to take them to task on the FOID card issue also. Chicago Politics at it's best! In Chicago and now in Washington as well! Hopefully not for long!

We are getting pretty tired of people saying that. As PPC said, it's just no that easy. Could you just up and move from your state? Besides, last I checked Illinois was still part of the United States and we deserve the same rights as the rest of the country.
