Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Thank you very much for the information and the response. According to my civilian lawyer that I hired when the citation occurred, it will come off my record on its own with time and will not need to be expunged. I was not planning on telling command because I do not think that the city will contact my base. It is a really embarrassing infraction and something that is extremely out of character for me. Is it worth trying to get the infraction dismissed in court?
No, I just have to pay a fine ($200).
Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to me. I work on a very small base and am in a leadership position and did not want to talk to the one lawyer that is located on base who is really good friends with my commander. Thank you very much.
