Misdemeanor (non-felony) not convicted arrests case dropped, Problem?
How about if you were arrested but never convicted? For example in the USA cops have a hard on for arresting the guy if you fart to loud and your wife calls the cops, bamn the law is pretty clear, if the cops come to your huse for a domestic violence call regardless if it occurred you will go to jail. 90% of these cases are dropped the same night or the next day when you go to your arraignment. They show up on your criminal record under arrest report but clearly states under the disposition as dropped, insufficient evidence or interest of justice etc.
Would these type of things show up on Interpol? Would the Legion Gestapo care if you omitted this detail about your criminal past then found out later, which really isn't one considering it was dropped and no formal charges were ever brought up. Or if you enter into a diversion program and charges were later dropped after successful completion. Is this a big deal? Frowned upon etc.? Are domestic violence charges a black mark (X3)? However no conviction but one successful diversion program completion.
How can one go to find out what exactly Interpol has on you? Can you request directly from them a copy of your record/report that they have? I know you can get a copy of your RAP (arrest and report) sheet directly from your local police office but what do they send to Interpol? Everything, or just serious and or violent felony convictions?
Man guys I'm 37 and have had some hiccups, I'm no saint but I ain't a hardened criminal or wife beater. I just really want to get into the damn Legion and I know with my age it's strike one, so I want to better my case as best as possible. Hell I'm even going to join on December 20 as suggested on this board and learn French as best as possible to better my chances. I have nothing here and this is my last salvation as a complete life. Thanks for any help/advice.
