Good point! But I would meet with the lawyer first and get more information regarding the citations. In both my friend’s cases the citations were completely dropped from their record as if they never happened.This is all great advice, but one of the questions asked by the OP is if the original charge needs to be reported to USNA if reduced. As I read the instructions for the Police Record Check, it looks it would need to be reported, but it is not perfectly clear. If the original charges are reduced or even dropped, they still physically exist and are public record. Or are they? This is why I feel the OP should be upfront with USNA regardless of what is done within the legal system.
