Convicted Criminal Arrested When Trying to Get Concealed Handgun Permit
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio -- A Springfield man, convicted of molesting a child, was arrested after he tried to get a gun permit.
According to deputies, William Dexter Saint-John had applied for a concealed weapon carry permit in November.
He was charged with falsification after a background check showed that Saint-John had a long criminal history, including a child molestation conviction in Georgia, where he spent time in prison.
Deputies said he failed to mention any of his past history on his application.
