HOUSTON – A Houston woman who teaches a concealed handgun licensing class is facing charges after investigators say she issued CHLs to students without conducting the handgun-proficiency portion of the class.
Oneida Broussard is charged with tampering with a governmental record.
According to the Texas DPS, Broussard was turned in by her students.
In order to get a CHL, students must pass both a classroom assessment and a handgun proficiency test.
Investigators said in September 2010, Broussard gave out certificates to her students and told them to check "pass" for both the classroom instruction and gun range portions before the final exam was conducted at the gun range.
When she met with the students at the gun range later that same day, investigators said she told them that the rates had gone up, so they didn’t need to complete the shooting portion of the class.
The students said Broussard told them they had everything they needed to get their CHLs.
