1997 or 1998 I was arrested on an Air Force base in Shreveport, LA. How do I find out details of that charge/ conviction on my record? I think I paid a fine and I know I did community service. Was I convicted of a felony?
There are facts missing that we dont know about. If you were a civilian then you could have had the charges in Federal Court... it's conceivable you had them in State Court... if you were military you could have been charged under the UCMJ as well... Why all of the sudden interest after 20 years?

DUIs are most frequently NOT felonies. Only in cases of death, serious bodily injury or multiple convictions would it be a felony.
You can try accessing the information at the US District Court where the case was heard, since I'm not certain that petty offenses are available on PACER.
Every case and situation is different and my answers will vary greatly depending on the specific facts of each one. My answers shouldn't be considered complete answers to each question and an answer doesn't establish an attorney/client relationship. Always seek the advice of your own attorney.

First offense DWI in Louisiana was, and still is, a misdemeanor. Have you checked with the JAG office at the base as to the records? I'm assuming you were in the military at the time.
