    Penalty for failing to disclose

    I'm trying to do research on disclosure laws? I remember when Ohio first passed shall issue, failure to disclose was a felony. What is the penalty now? I wasn't sure if it was downgraded or if the penalty was repealed.

    I looked in 2923.126; however, I don't see a penalty.

    Any help with a law cite would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    That's because it is in ORC 2923.12:

    http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/2923.12

    (B) No person who has been issued a concealed handgun license shall do any of the following:

    (1) If the person is stopped for a law enforcement purpose and is carrying a concealed handgun, fail to promptly inform any law enforcement officer who approaches the person after the person has been stopped that the person has been issued a concealed handgun license and that the person then is carrying a concealed handgun;

    ...

    (F) (3) Except as otherwise provided in this division, carrying concealed weapons in violation of division (B)(1) of this section is a misdemeanor of the first degree, and, in addition to any other penalty or sanction imposed for a violation of division (B)(1) of this section, the offender's concealed handgun license shall be suspended pursuant to division (A)(2) of section 2923.128 of the Revised Code. If, at the time of the stop of the offender for a law enforcement purpose that was the basis of the violation, any law enforcement officer involved with the stop had actual knowledge that the offender has been issued a concealed handgun license, carrying concealed weapons in violation of division (B)(1) of this section is a minor misdemeanor, and the offender's concealed handgun license shall not be suspended pursuant to division (A)(2) of section 2923.128 of the Revised Code.

    Anything I post in these forums is my personal opinion formed by my own interpretation of the topic.
    IANAL and anything I say is not intended to be nor should it be taken as legal advice.
