Can a felon get a moral waiver to join the military?

Can a felon get a moral waiver to join the military?

Military Criminal History (Moral) Waivers   

Hi, My name is Jamie. I recently read your blog on ''felons-turn-to-military-to-find-jobs''. I have been extremely interested in joining the Army ever since I was a kid. My father spent 22 years in the Army, fought in the Gulf War, traveled the world and retired a Sergeant Major in the end. I have never looked up to anyone more than him. Joining the Army has been my one and only interest, even to this day.

 In 2001 (14 years old) I was charged with 1st degree assault with sexual motivation and it was dropped to 3rd degree. A felony none-the-less. My hopes at joining the Army were dashed and ever more so when I even tried applying in person. It's been over seven years now and I haven't had any trouble with the law and never plan to. I was young and stupid and regret what I did every day. I'm 21 now and am still trying to look ahead and see what I should do with my life, I literally never had any interest in my future except to join the Army and now I'm struggling.

I recently just heard about the Moral Waivers that were introduced in 2009 and was hoping you could shed some light on the matter. I would appreciate anything you have to offer. I want to serve my country and I want to follow in the footsteps of my father. Thank you.

Jamie


 Can a felon get a moral waiver to join the military?



Hello Jaime,

Can a felon get a moral waiver to join the military?There are military personnel serving today with sexual assault convictions. In fact I have students who have joined the military. It is a growing trend that ex-offenders and felons having difficulty finding jobs are turning to serving in the military. It is my understanding that you are more likely to get a moral waiver from the Army or Navy than the other branches.

I suggest talking to a recruiter. A recruiter will tell you what type of waiver you will need and exactly how to apply.  Bear in mind that no one has the right to serve in the military and the granting of waivers is totally up to discretion of the Army.

I hope this helps.

Felons Turn to the Military to Find Jobs and Careers

Felons Turn to the Military to Find Jobs and Careers

More and more Ex-offenders and felons are turning to military service as a means to a career. Getting a job with a criminal record is tough. Getting a job with a criminal record in a down economy is even tougher. The United States military is finding it tougher to find qualified recruits to fill the country's demands of its foreign policies. All branches of the military have been struggling to increase their numbers as part of a broader effort to meet the needs of world wide military operation. As a result, the number of recruits needing waivers for felony convictions has grown in recent years and subsequently, the number of waivers has also grown.

In some cases the military offers waivers to convicted felons making them eligible to serve. In fact the the number of waivers has steadily risen from 2007 to the present.

Typically the crimes that can keep you out of the army are larceny, assault, rape, drug related and murder. There is also consideration for those who have only one conviction and those crimes occurred years ago.  Generally, the Army will not grant waivers to recruits convicted of sexually violent offenses, narcotics trafficking or  sales.

Felons
For many felons, this is an opportunity to not only to put their backgrounds behind them find a job, but to learn skills, trades and start careers. The military may hold valuable jobs for felons.  If a felon is considering the military as a career option, historically, the Army has the best record of granting waivers and the Marines has the next best.  Just some information.

To get more information about waivers for ex-offenders and felons contact your local military recruiter.

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military

Felon with sex offense wants to join the military


Felon with sex offense wants to join the military
Found your website while searching "felon" info and thought I would take a chance.

When my son was 19, he had come home from college for the summer, earned his black belt in Tae kwon Do, and made the mistake of having a relationship with a 15 year old girl in his karate class. She was working on her black belt and had an immense crush on my son...and vice versa. They had known each other for several years--and were both very talented "karate kids."
Anyway, they broke it off when he went back to school--but remained friends.

The young lady went to counseling a year later for some unrelated family issues and revealed that she had a boyfriend a year ago and they had sex. Bingo...the therapist calls the state, the state arrests my son, who is now 20 almost 21, and presses charges...4 counts of sex with a minor. Neither girl nor her family pressed charges against my son. In addition, we were told that because he had recently earned his black belt degree that he was considered "someone of higher responsibility" and that is why the state decided to prosecute. I might add that he was in the process of applying for the Indiana State Trooper program--was almost there! BIG NIGHTMARE for our family since this son was the one who never drank, partied, smoked...just a good, sweet, loving kid and born again Christain... who did something really dumb based on emotion.

The deal was this, 6 months house arrest and 3 years probation which we have almost completed...without grumbling I might add. Felony reduced to misdemeanor as soon as probation ends actually on 9/16/10. He has been planning to join the military... to do good in the world and serve the country he loves. What are his chances? He talked to an recruiter (about 6 months ago) about Indiana air guard and was told not just no-- but never.

I appreciate your time.

 I know quite a few young men in your son's same situation. The good news is that his charge will be downgraded to a misdemeanor.  From time to time the military grants waivers to recruits who have criminal records.  Most are moral waivers, which include some felonies and misdemeanors.

The only military branch offering waivers to ex-offenders is the Army. He may find more success there.  The Army recruiter will tell him exactly what to do to get the process started.  It is totally up to the Army to grant the waiver.

I hope this helps.
