He was sentenced to 5 months, did 4 and was released he wants to join the Army after his release from the Marines, his two brothers are military and his older brother told him to try to get into the army. Is that possible with a other than honorable discharge?
Only way to tell is to go down to the Army recruiter and ask. While the OTH will certainly be a hurdle, the bigger hurdle will be what reenlistment code is on the DD214. If it is an RE4, there is basically no chance as RE4 code means a waiver is not available.
