Can a person scan in a DD214 and crop out lines 23-30 and

Can a person scan in a DD214 and crop out lines 23-30 and move the form # ***** up to create the illusion that section 22 was the last section on the document? This was done for the purpose of present to criminal court as proof of Honorable Discharge for sentencing purposes (to get a lighter sentence). The document showed nothing about his discharge or the domestic violence as the reason because he cropped that part out. The sentencing followed his felony conviction for Domestic Violence Criminal Threatening with a Deadly Weapon and Misdemeanor of Misuse of a firearm. He threatened his wife and young children with a loaded weapon and did receive a lighter sentence based upon his Honorable service and discharge. He did get an Honorable Discharge. He lost all VA Benefits.
