I have been asked by a fellow soldier to help draft a letter. He's a good kid, really. the problem is that he's got a class "c" felony. Its a statutory rape charge. He was 18 at the time. She, unfortuneately, wasn't. Dad found out and things went down hill from there.
He has no other convictions (or charges for that matter).
The purpose of the letter is to get permission for him to go on an overseas deployment with the National Guard. It will be addressed to the Judge that ruled on his case.

Please Note: I am not a person that tolerates rape. But this is a case of an 18 y/o being an 18 y/o. No force, no nothing, just a few months of age difference. Having him there would be a good thing for the mission and for him. Again, he's a good kid.

Thanks,
Midwinter

Write the letter. All he did was do what comes natural. If they were both 5 years older, there would be no charge.

There is a waiver for anything

Best bet is to put the state in which it happened in the title of the post. Without that, it'll be hard for anybody to figure out whether he can help.
