One misdemeanor while in DEP?
I've looked high and low on the internet, and it says 2 or more misdemeanors require a waiver.
But it says nothing about just one?

it ALL depends on what type of misd. was it a crime of violence, drugs what. contact your local recruiter and he has a list and can help you out.

DANGIT, thats the THIRD TIME my internet has screwed up and I've lost a huge post I've written!!!
For the third time....
I did something illegal a few months ago, I had no idea it was going to land me in this much trouble. I viewed it as doing 70mph in a 65, it seriously didnt seem like a big deal. (Its not drugs, or vandalism, or theft, or anything "criminal" per say, its basically me just making a mistake and doing something an idiot teenage guy could be seen doing) I'd love to say what kind it was, but I really don't feel like putting it out on the internet just yet. Lets just say it wasn't a crime against another person, or property.
Well, in any case, the police found out, they contacted me and my recruiter, and talked to me at my house. I helped them out, cooperated to the fullest, I manned up and basically said, you're right, I messed up, now lets move on so I can get this behind me and move on to the Marine Corps.
Its a misdemeanor, and I'm basically wondering 2 things:
1. I've looked ALLL OVER the Internet trying to find information if you need a waiver for one misdemeanor. All the websites say you need a waiver for two, but no where can I find anything that gives any information at all for one misdemeanor. Its not a big deal, as its not a "moral" crime or anything so I can easily get a waiver, I'm just hoping I don't have to do that. (I have a perfect record other than this too)
2. Does the Marine Corps have any sort of waiting period after probation or anything like that? I saw online the Army makes you wait 30 days after ending probation in order to enlist, but it says nothing about the USMC and it says nothing about people already in DEP. (And yes, I was DEP'd in when this took place)
My recruiter and I have already talked about it, and she has spoken with the investigator and it looks as if my DEP status may help me out and show that I'm not just some screwup at life.

Maybe I am missing something here, but you have already stated, more than once, that the regs require a waiver for TWO or more misdemeanors. You have ONE. How is this confusing you??? If your recruiter is stepping up to the plate for you with the authorities, you are probably alright. Don't overthink this thing, poolee...the time to think was BEFORE you committed whatever criminal act you are trying to recover from right now. Best of luck with that, too.

The wording was "A waiver is required for 2 misdemeanors" I didn't know if that meant like, a waiver could be "requested" for one misdemeanor. I was just double checking.
It just seems kinda...I don't know, weird, that I needed a waiver for attending one counseling session so the counselor could ask me questions about my dad's disorder, but I don't need one for this crime.
The inspector actually contacted my recruiter before me, my whole RSS gave me quite a verbal shellacking...(poolees, parents, recruiters...everyone)

if you are on probation, you're done for the time being. if, however you do not get probation you are good to go. if the regs say TWO and you only have ONE and the crime is not of violence but sumthing stupid like peeing on a road you'll probably go. also, if your recruiter has not said you are NOT going then i beleive your good.

Since your recruiter is awae of your situation, and has apparently not mentioned the need for a waiver, you most likely don't have anything to worry about. The big thing is to keep on the recruiter about it until you have the answer you need...she will have the correct info.

No, I've been "ordered"...aka threatened with death, and told to keep my mouth shut.
I only included as many details as I did to help whoever answered my questions about the waiver.

Since we don't know what the crime is, it is impossible to tell. But I would guess this won't be any big deal for you. But, if you're on probation, you will have to finish that before you can go to boot camp.
Hope everything turns out well for you. If there is anything I can do to help you, just let me know.

Probation is just something usually given for misdemeanors, which is why I brought it up. I have no idea what the state attorney has in mind.
