My question involves criminal law for the state of: Florida
I've wanted to join the military for a couple years now, but really havent had the motivation to do so because school and my jobs have been sufficient. Although, I recently got wrapped up in a situation that has gotten me being tried for the following charges
Larceny Grand Theft felony
Solicitation (planning?) felony
Tampering with Evidence misdemeanor
I am going to go over this with my attorney, but wanted to hear some other peoples perspective on this as well. I have basically admitted to dropping somebody off and picking them up. They have stolen items, and placed them in my vehicle. I disposed of the stolen property after finding out what exactly happened. And they are charging me for planning the crime, committing the crime and disposing of the evidence. They have received everything that was stolen, and I went to the police when they started asking my family about the situation so they didn't have to go looking for me.
I am a student at a local college, with a GPA of 3.5 and currently dual majoring in Radiological sciences and working to get my Registered Nursing degree. I have a Florida Bright futures scholarship as well. And working part time to pay my bills. So its not like Im on a wrong track, i just got mixed up in the wrong situation.
My priors include one misdemeanor drug charge that was dismissed after PTI probation.
Finally my question is:
After the above things considered, a friend told me that if I ever wanted to join the military, that now would be the time to do it because it might give the court more of a reason to dismiss the charges. Is this true, and if it is, what is the likelihood of it actually happening?
