How do I find the max penalty for a crime committed in MD in 1986? CJIS code 4 3550, the current code states 4 years and $25k

Asked over 1 year ago - Sykesville, MD

Found guilty for CDS, found in possession of less than 1 gram of marijuana. I have purchased firearms in several states since but have recently been denied a CCW permit in AZ. Reason stated is because the misdemeanor charge carries max sentence of 4y and federal only allows max of 2y. I believe the wrong CJIS code may have been used in my case and all records are gone except basics. Is it possible that the CJIS code carried a lesser max sentence in 1986 and if so, how can I find out?
