How Will a DUI Affect Me If I Am in the Military?

Unlike some other states, a DUI in california is considered a misdemeanor and does not necessarily require jail time. With that being said, the offense does require a probationary sentence in most cases and this is where trouble stems in terms of those in the military. Many branches of the armed services will not allow a soldier to be deployed if the person is on probation so check with your commander first before pleading guilty to any DUI charge if you are a member of the armed services active duty.
