I'm being denied reenlistment because I have a page 11 on allegations of adultery. I refused njp and requested Court martial but allegedly the Court martial authority didn't want to go on with my case because there was insufficient evidence. What can I do? They also trying to give me a general discharge JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? Customer: North Carolina JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this? Customer: Yes it seems everyone assumes I did it based off preponderance of evidence JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: They put me on legal hold this past November but apparently I got off legal hold April 10 this year and they gave me an EAS date of April 20 without notifying me. So I had to sign a 30 day extension so I can go to transitioning classes and check out the Marine Corps my new EAS date is May 20 2017

I received an Art 15., 112a for possession of "steroids"

Hello, I received an Art 15., 112a for possession of "steroids" while in Iraq in 2009. I admitted to the purchase and to not using them. It was open and shut. I have since received a copy of the investigation via FOIA request and it clearly states All evidence was submitted to army labs and tested negative for any controlled substance. Because it was investigated by NCIS it produces a NCIC record. With this new information is it possible to get it removed from records?

If this is the same person who helped me a few days ago, I

If this is the same person who helped me a few days ago, I apologize for the repeat of a few bits of information.The charge was in California. He is meeting with an Arkansas recruiterMy son is meeting with an Army recruiter. He has paperwork to fill out and will be getting fingerprinted.When he was under 16 he pled guilty to one count California penal code 288.5(a) in a juvenile court. He was not ever handcuffed, arrested, fingerprinted and did not spend any time detained. He did receive one year probation. He did not have to register. His records were voluntarily sealed by the court. The petition against him was dismissed.He is aware he needs to disclose.Will this be considered an automatic DQ or *may* he be eligible to file a waiver?He is unsure how to answer several questions. Can you help?1. Have you ever been charged with any felony offense? (The only thing in paperwork I can find is that if he were tried as an adult it would have been a felony. He was not.)2. Have you ever been arrested by any police officer, sheriff, marshal or any type of law enforcement officer? (We did report to the police station a few days after I filed the report (this offense was in the family) and we were released.Thank you for your information.
