      if it was a felony, then no.

      If it is was a misdemeanor...then its a strong maybe. waivers are few and far between now. I won't lie to your odds of getting in are very slim. the best thing you can do is talk to a recruiter face to face

        Sodomy? That's an interesting one. So a felony conviction for sodomy, something whis has been legal for about 15 years now, is still a bar or is that aspect of the list outdated?

          If a sexual assault only happened orally; that will fall under sodomy as well.

          Case in point....

            Sodomy is one of those things that is rarely charged. If it is, it is almost always in connection with some type of rape or forced sexual act.

                the emphasis is on non-violent, non-drug related crimes. Murder is definately a no-go.

                    I've been involved in sexual misconduct for years myself. Never even so much as needed a waiver.

                      Oh it is a continuation, you have had to commit each one of them. Within a time frame too, otherwise you will need to start over or ask your Governor for a pardon.
