Security Clearance and Convictions Hi all, I'm just trying to get a few answers on a subject which is worrying me constantly Here's the situation surrounding the problem- Recently my ex of two years ended it with me over Facebook, it was quite abrupt and she waited until we'd dropped her off at home after taking her on holiday for a week and paying for everything. I was obviously upset, rang her about 100 times? In the space of 3 weeks. Anyway so as things start to die down a knock on the door suddenly happens and the Police are at my door waiting to arrest me. Apparently it was a 'domestic' and it'd been taken to court, I was also convicted of malicious communications (I sent a message to her guy mate saying 'you won't be able to have sex with her, she's got a problem with sex...) so, two convictions, unsepnt, and 1 conviction for common assault from 3 years ago. I'll lsit everything shortly. I've been told by the Navy to come back in 12 months and they'll see what they can do. So here's a full list of everything I have- possessing an offensive weapon 2004 - I was 12 and it was a BB Gun, I received a police warning - under 18 criminal damage 2009 - reprimand - under 18 common assault by beating 2001 - spent now - over 18 on the spot fine for not scanning an item at Tesco (silly of me) - £80 fixed penalty - over 18 harassment section 2 and malicious communications - 140 hours community service, £250 fine, 9 months probation...... all for the sake of letting my heart rule my head Now I know how bad it looks, apparently I'm a very decent person, I just fall into bad habbits, being 22 now though I'd say it was very safe to say life lessons are learnt and will not be forgotten, so please give me factual answers and then take the p1ss? It's a very very worring subject and all help is appreciated! SO will this effect my security clearance? I've told the RN Recruiting staff about these, and they said once it's spent Jack, you can come back (or apply when you've completed the disposals and we'll try and get you in before) I've always wanted to join the marines, I even opted for the Paras but came out of that because I felt so strongly for the Marines! So again, help is very appreciated!
