Click to Call 253-317-8494

Messy Military Lawyer. Today’s public service announcement involves military law enforcement and what it means.

If you have ever been hauled in for questioning and advised of your rights, if you have, odds are they founded an allegation against you and that you were input into NCIC. A federal database that keeps track of military investigations, state investigations, federal investigations. There are many employers who have access to NCIC, especially federal employers, law enforcement. If you have been indexed, meaning there was a probable cause determination that you committed some violation, that’s going to turn up on your NCIC.

A lot of people don’t realize that encounter when you go down there and they take your fingerprints and they do mugshots and they take a swab of the inside of your mouth for DNA, that is an arrest. So later, if you have employment obligations that ask you, have you ever been arrested? You’re under an obligation to say, yes. Messy military lawyer.
