Paraphernalia. I was informed the new LA DA is not pursuing any low level misdemeanors (including the ones I was charged with). The arresting officer also confirmed this. However, my court date is in April during which time I am supposed to be in Basic training. Any advice?
If you were arrested, charged, and fingerprinted you dont have any choice; the military will find out eventually and a number of things could happen at that point, including a discharge for the convenience of the government while you are in training. If your MOS is at all reliant on ability to...Read more »
Unless your matter involves military legal issues, you could try reposting under Banking and Real Estate. There's no guarantee that every question is picked up, but your question remains open for five weeks and could have better chances of being seen in those categories. Good luck

No lawyer has a crystal ball to predict what your governing authority might be thinking. If you were not caught carrying, under the influence, or anything else consistent with being under the influence of a controlled substance described in § 112a, and since you were not arrested and charged with...Read more »
Speak with a recruiter. Their job is to get people to enlist. They can educate you on the current waivers available. Keep in mind each of the services have different recruitment policies so you may want to check with each of the branches of the US Military. Good luck.
that represented me in juvenile court. He suggested and is confident we can successfully unseal my record, file a motion to reduce all felonies to misdemeanors, file a secondary motion to have the case dismissed by a judge, and re-seal the record.

You’re going to need to be more specific. “Mass punishment” is what? Removal of privileges may be just fine depending on how it was done. Or it could be hazing. Or it could be the command actually enforcing existing policy. Without more facts, I cant make an assessment.
While on terminal leave, a friend of mine was charged with simple possession of a controlled substance on a federal property and had to appear in a federal magistrate court (where it was dismissed). His command found out about the incident and put him on legal hold just a few days before his EAOS... Read more »
If it was dismissed "with prejudice" in the federal court, then there is an argument that the courts-martial may be bound by that dismissal. It depends on the reason and grounds it was dimissed. If the dismissal is silent, it's likely "without prejudice" and still subject to UCMJ action.
Absolutely. It is pretty much a military career killer. The only "exception" is when the service member is a junior enlisted. The military leadership recognizes that a young soldier (or marine, etc.) will make mistakes. If that junior enlisted member is an otherwise good troop, a...Read more »
