When I was 17 I was arrested for underage possession of

When I was 17 I was arrested for underage possession of alcohol and I got a conditional discharge. I never went to court and my father handled all the legal aspects. I am filling out a job application and they ask if I have ever been convicted of a crime or admitted committing a crime. My dad claims that after the conditional discharge the record was sealed but he says it is so long ago he no longer has a copy that says the record was sealed. I would like to check no since I believe it is a sealed record but I am not sure what to do.

Thanks Blake. Maybe I will try the medical discharge, But I assume that is a long process? What do you think would happen if I just stop showing up? Like maybe after this weekend when I receive my article 15 punishment. I also have orders for some mandatory training in august so if i don't show up it will be disobeying a direct order right? Which is how i received my article 15.

I was charged with possession of marijuanna about 14 years

I was charged with possession of marijuanna about 14 years ago in Guam by osi. I was not court marshaled and received an article 15 by comander. I was discharged administratively General Under Honorable condition. When a background check was done it came back from CT SPBI as " There may be a charge with no disposition. Then the FBI retained a rap sheet from OSI that stated arrest for unknown severity of possession of Marijuanna ( court cycle 001) then under Disposition it says literal charge possession/ use of marijuanna 112 UCMJ. Discharge under other than honorable condition.JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: The discharge is wrong, there was no court marshal and I was under the impression that this was not a conviction however the FBI states there was a conviction. I remained in the service for 9 more months and then was administratively under the conditions mentioned. How do I get this information corrected with the FBI and get it removed from cjis?JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have the " rap sheet" and my Dd214 from nine months later with general under honorable discharge. I never even received an loc or lor before or after the incident and I had a lot of letters of character written for me. Basically I need to know if the DD214 trumps the incorrect rap sheet and will they correct it if I send it to the cjis division to get it fixed. I know it may need to stay in military files but an article if should not come up as a conviction in cjis??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.

I am currently pending chapter Art. 15. I have not yet been

I am currently pending chapter for an Art. 15. I have not yet been counseled for separation, but I am scheduling the necessary appointments to complete my chapter packet. My command (company-level) has been willing to work with me thus far and they do not feel that I should be chaptered, yet the decision has been made at the BN+ level. Do they HAVE to chapter me or initiate a chapter as a result of a field grade Article 15? If I qualify for another, non-punitive chapter (i.e. Family Care Plan), can my unit commander elect to initiate separation under that to avoid my receiving a General (Under Honorable Conditions) discharge?
