Howdy folks, I've been gone awhile and I've been in an unbelieveable hassle. I need some advice please. I have a very mean SIL who is a LEO, but he is very well liked by all departments in the area. He is a "high ranking" city LEO. His wife is my daughter and she is mentally ill to the point that she has actually been an inpatient in a psychiatric ward for an extended stay. I believe she is paranoid schizophrenic just based on observation but of course I've never seen her medical records. There is an ongoing family squabble over control of my Dad who is 94, a bit senile, but healthy and lives at home. He has finally caught on that these two relatives are all bad for him and for me and my sister, and no longer welcomes them. Here's the rub. My SIL and daughter have filed for 3 restraining orders against me in the past year, all full of lies. I have prevailed on all 3 of them outright, so my record is clean as is my wallet, LOL. My SIL also filed a false police report with the Sheriff which paralleled one of the requests for a RO but of course I proved that untrue when I proved the request for the RO with identical charges untrue. Because of court dates, etc., I've had to give up "custody and control" of my weapons for most of the past year but I have them back now and am open carrying. My LEO SIL is friends with the Sheriff who now won't give me back my CHL which of course was taken with the serving of the first RO. He won't say why - he won't even meet with me or answer phone calls. When I've gone to the front desk at his department I've been told only that there is a "hold" on my permit. I have a very good attorney and I have tasked him with getting that permit back, but even he is getting stiffed so it looks like we go to court again. Does anyone know the law in Oregon well enough to know if the Sheriff has to, under law, give me that permit back, or does he have "discretion?" I've had the permit since the 70's and of course have a squeaky clean background. Does anyone know if the Sheriff can withhold that permit just because he wants to hassle me while I still have a clean record, and have met all of the requirements for the permit? Thanks!
