Hello, I have a question for any police academy recruiter. I have tried to get in contact with a recruiter here in town but not returning phone call. I am attending college to earn a degree in law enforcement and then decide to goin the military. I will try to keep the story short. Me and my husband have been having issues, I started sleeping in a seperate room, he came home after having a few drinks came into my room when asked to leave he refused when I tried to push him out of room he pined me down on the bed in the mix of thing I elbowed him in mouth and cut his lip I then reached behide me and scratched his eye. He called the police not knowing that I would be arrested. Anyways I was first charged with domestic violence charge, then it was dropped to a simply battery. Here is the question: will this charge stop me from getting into the academy and then into a ploice department. It has already affected me from going into the military as a M.P. I have also thought about having my record exsponged. All comments are welcomed. Thank you

A domestic violence conviction (by federal law) prevents you from owning or possessing a firearm; thus excluding you from LE and the Armed Forces.
 
Expungement does not remove the conviction and the laws, procedures and effect varies from location to location.
 
A domestic violence conviction or guilty plea is just that and there is no removing the charge or even if sealed; does not remove the occurrence.
 
How was this a bar from entering the Military as an MP if it was not a Domestic Violence charge? something is not playing out fully here.
 
 
As far as it being a bar from LE, if it was a domestic, nearly 100%. If it was changed to simple battery, that is a case by case thing and up to the given agency.
 

 


 In the end, get with an Attorney to explore the laws of your state and the actual citation of the conviction.

Exactly.  The DV removed from the charge it is possible.

Thats what Im not sure of. It went from D V touch and strick to a simply battery. They first offered 1 yr probation, but I didnt accept it. Went to court a second time they offered to drop it to simple battery and 6 mon. probation community service and classes. I still dont understand that the fact he was drinking and all of his wounds were from me reaching behide me. I wanted to take to trial but but the public deffender talked me out of it. As far as the military I would have to be active for three years prove myself to them and then switch my m.o.s to M.P. The only thing I  would be able to do is an office job, not what I planned for.

You NEED to go to the Court and see what the final disposition of the charge is. The Clerk of Court should be able to assist you on this.
 
As for the Military and not knowing the nuances of what is waiver able for any given MOS, that is up the Career Counselor and Recruiter. Going in for x time to “prove” you are a good person is really for naught in my honest opinion. And as an aside, and also my opinion is that while MPs are great at what they do, it is a different animal than traditional city cop stuff. While you will gain great insight and if working a garrison post, a lot of close experience; it is different. (Different by way of rules, regulations and such) the work itself is usually very close by way of types of calls.
