I was charged with schemes to defruad (felony) in 2007 the amount I took was $427. I was reading elsewhere that the misdemeanor charge is just $100 dollars less than that. I went into the pre-trial prevention program and did comm. service, and probation for 6 months, also paid restitution. I am trying to get into the military and they are not accepting felony waivers at this time. They are however willing to work with me if I can get the charge dropped to a misdemeanor. I have wanted to serve this amazing country since I graduated in 2007, even completed the 4 semesters of ROTC, but was held back from it because of other family reasons. Then I got into trouble. I was also reading somewhere that this is possible, but I am not sure on how to go about it. Thanks for all the help in advance!
