Hi. Ive been in for a little over 5 years and I'm in my second enlistment. I recently got two ARI's and had a suspended bust with my first ARI. I am going to NJP. I asked for treatment but didn't have a meeting for treatment until after my second incident. Can I fight it?
I am in the US Air Force Reserves. I live in and was charged in Pennsylvania. Simple Assault: 18 § 2701 §§ A3 (Lead) and Disorderly Conduct Hazardous/Physi Off: 18 § 5503 §§ A4 I was offered an ARD(Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) program. Are you able to stay in the Air Force Reserves while on an ARD() program or will I receive a discharge for it? It would not affect my Drills weekends. I'm also scheduled for a deployment, but was told that submiting my orders for the deployment would supposedly allow me to get off the ARD program early. I tried contacting Wright Patterson AFB defense counsel and was told they couldn't give me an answer, that I must talk with a civilian attorney. My public defender doesn't have an answer for me either, he seems to just want to do whatever is easiest for himself.
