So I have an application to join the CGAUX and have a question.
I'm a twenty year-old college student and back when I was sixteen I got charged with a misdemeanor controlled substance possession. In return for a guilty plea, paying a fine, and a little bit of community service I had the charge dismissed. After the dismissal I had my attorney expunge the charge that was also sealed due to being a juvenile.
Nothing on the application asked about a criminal background, but there was the "authorization for release of information" part, which counts as the background check. Will this come up on the background check, and also will it prevent me from being able to join the aux?
I would ask my flotilla commander, but I remember back at sixteen after my expungement that my attorney told me to not ask or answer any questions regarding a criminal record unless I legally have to. So if it's something the auxiliary won't find out about, I am not going to blow it asking the commander. Also if the record shows up on the background check, and does not prevent me from joining, will the flotilla find out about it?
