I have a military arrest record that occurred in 2009 for wrongful distribution of percocets. I have attended the police academy in Texas and have been unable to obtain employment with a police department. I'm not sure what I can do about the record. What options are available to me?
JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: Due to the fact that they don't know military law
. They advised me to seek out a JAG lawyer or a lawyer who is up to date on military law.
JA: Is there anything else the Military Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: I have an uncharacterized discharge
. Upon researching the subject, due to insufficient time spent in the military there is no option to upgrade my discharge. The discharge was made under separation
code JFV, reenlistment code 3. AR 635-200, PARA 5-17. Condition, not a disability. Is there anything I can do about the discharge?
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
