I just got cleared at MEPS and my fingerprints came back with a contempt of court in 2002. I was forthcoming about this incident to the recruiter and he said not to worry about it because it happened in the USVI and was supposed to come off my record. I was the victim in the case and was supposed to testify against another individual who had already left the island. I spoke with the DA and told them this person no longer was there and was given the impression that I did not have to attend this court date. Needless to say the judge didnt feel the same way and arrested me for contempt. I was the victim! After my arrest I was told it would come off my record. Apparently Not!
The recruiter says I have to write a statement and a Commander has to clear me. Im so nervous that this will disqualify me or I want be able to get the security clearance. Anybody out there who has advice or was in a similar situation, I'd love to read it!
