I'm military and getting charged for doing the right thing. I was stopped one night on the way to turn in a weapon i took from a fellow friend who was about to attempt a crime he didnt need. I got stop right before I got to the station... reason stated i had a broken tale light>False info. Long story short they i got off but the weapon came bacl stolen so now im trying to fight this charge. My lawyer got it down to where i could just charge a misdemeanor of improper storage of a firearm in a pov with a fine of $600 but he said that it will be on my record for two years before i can get it expunge. Is this a good charge to settle with or no? On the other hand of that I have successfully started my military career (5yrs) and i dont want to mess it up nor have anything on my record to affect me from serving my country. Is this charge okay to settle for where as my military career wont be affected and the military cant turn around and charge me with something too or is there something else i should fight for? Is there a way to not have this on my record if i do settle for this charge?
Soilder in need!!!!
