I'm on an Army ROTC scholarship and got a Public Intoxication as a minor (a week before turning 21). If my detachment finds out, I will lose my scholarship and have to pay back about $40,000 for the 3.5 years they've been paying for my school. I've been told I have the option of doing deferred disposition and then getting the incident expunged from my records upon completion of the deferred criteria. If I do this, can they still see a record of the incident during a background check before I commission as an officer? I would hate to lose my future career and that much money because of one bad mistake, but I don't see another option right now.
