I am trying to join the military but the recruiter has looked over my background check and said that I have too many Misdemeanors such as the following:
2 years ago I was charged on a DUI and resisting an officer without violence.
I was also picked up on a violation of probation pertaining to the DUI.
The court dropped the resisting an officer and I received a nolle prosequi for it. I completed the year probation for the DUI. However, since the court did not have proof that I had paid the fine, I was picked up on a violation and spent a few days in jail. I paid my fine and was released without any other probation.
They are calling this 3 counts of misdemeaner:
2. Resisting officer ( they are telling me that I need to provide evidence why it was dropped. I went to the court and there is nothing in the file only the nolle Prosequi paper) Apparently if there was an additional sentence added onto the DUI, I am guilty of it even though I was cleared
3. Violation of probation.
My question is would this be considered 3 misdemeaners or 2?
Also, is there another way of getting this cleared? I was told that I could try writing to my congressman for clearance into the military but that would be the last resort.
Sorry that this is so long but I am really desperate.
Also, one other thing; do different states have different military laws as far as getting into the military. Such as if I moved to my sister's house in Virginia would it be any easier?
