WINFIELD - A man is asking a court to reverse the denial of his application to carry a concealed weapon.
William David Saul filed a Petition for Review of Denial of State License to Carry a Concealed Weapon on Dec. 6 in Putnam County Circuit Court against Steve Deweese, Sheriff of Putnam County.
According to the petition, on Nov. 5, Saul submitted an application seeking a state license to carry a concealed weapon.
On Nov. 12, Deweese sent a letter advising the application had been denied due to the fact that Saul had been arrested for wanton endangerment with explosives, which was reduced to brandishing on May 21, 1996.
Saul claims that he is entitled to carry a concealed weapon and that the reason given for the denial is not sufficient to deny the license under the statute.
Saul is asking the court to find that he meets the criteria to be entitled to hold license to carry a concealed weapon. He is being represented in the case by Stephen L. Gaylock.
