Hey Guys ( and Girls)
Problerly going to get absolutely flamed here but here goes..
I was in the process of joining the army (paras) just over a year ago when I got myself into a bit of bother and ended up in front of a judge! Sentace I recied was A suspended sentance for 18 months along with community service etc!
The Army said I have to stop my application but can re-apply after my sentance is over ( Feb 2011)
Thats fair enough anf I understand that! But....
I am so keen to join and my P.O ( Probation Officer) said that since I have completed everything on my order except suspended sentance, we can go back to court and get my supervison dropped and get a conditional discharge! That will mean that I have completed everything except for the suspended sentance that can-not be revoked and I have to " ride that out".
But with the conditional discharge and the courts being happy that I have satisfactory completed my other orders do you know if its possible to apply for the army now instead of waiting untill febuary?
Im on top of my fitness at the moment (running 1.5 in 8>40) and would really like to join now.
Any words of wisdom or advice will be greatly appreciated!
I know of paras that have hbeen to prison etc and have still managed to join so I think theres hope still
Thanks alot guys and thanks in advance for any help
