Joining with three or more convictions against a person?

PERSEC

Midshipman
Hi all,

Now I'm due to resume my application for the Royal Marines in 12 months once my convictions is spent/half way spent. The problem I have is I've read up what is an instant bar to entry-

Sexual, drug, fraud offences etc. Now I don't have any of these, but where it says 'three or more offences against a person' is the problem... I've got common assault from 2011 and harassment and a communications offence from this year... now they will be spent (common assault will be fully spent) and the others half way sppent in 12 months... The question is will these stop me? I know the security clearance will check this so is it a stopper?

Also in all I've breached my bail conditions three times over the years and plead not guilty and been found guilty twice... dishonesty? Also a theft on the spot fine in 2012... not good, young stupid and very very stupid... Hopefully I can turn this around.

Good answers appreciated, then take the p1ss :) thankyou!

Oh, it's SE Soldier Royal Marines. Thanks.

You're only at the eye sight test and your dishing out banter like you know it all, keep that attitude mate, I'm sure you'll really suit being seamen specialist! :bs:

I can be at any stage (I'm also ex forces) Still can have a laugh and joke. Which I think it's very clear my post was. You need to lighten up.
Ring up your AFCO this morning and see what they say.

Multiple unspent offences against the person will quite likely be an issue, as will any unpaid fines or unfinished community-based sentences.

A waiver of the rehabilitation period is at the discretion of your Careers adviser & the fact that they may request one, doesn't mean it's in the bag unfortunately.

I take it you are aware the rehabilitation of offenders act changed quite radically last March? More here: Rehabilitation of Offenders - Changes 10/03/2014 - confirmed

Yeah sorry for the grumpiness mate, still getting over being dumped... hits your heart hard especially when you wake up. Anyway enough of my soppiness, I've done that, they said they'd apply for a waiver after it's half way spent (so 6 months after I finish community service) and if they don't get the waiver they said the process can take anything up to and over 6 months anyway so it might not even apply. Cheers all.

Persec, Im just guessing, but it all sounds bird related. I have no advice on the aspect of spent, unspent and waiver times, but I would use whatever time you have to wait before applying to put the bizzle in the mirror. Travel (depending on your reporting/bail conditions), go somewhere new, volunteer, change your life. You need a new outlook so you don't end up a career petty crim with a succession of bad choices/relationships and a slew of kids, exactly the stuff of Mr Kyles show. Sounds like you have a problem with anger, and that usually goes with the beer, and while the RM encourage both you will need to control them or you will find discipline in the service far harder than civvy street.

If you don't like the music, change the record. The best revenge is to live well. Good luck with the waiver and application, and whatever you decide to do in life.
