It certainly will ...

...affect your ability to enlist. For one thing you won't be able to join the Army until all of your legal matters are fulfilled. Court, fines, jail time, probation, community service, etc. - all have to be finished before you can even begin the recruitment process. Then the type of charge you'll receive will be a factor. If it's a felony I doubt if you'll be able to enlist. A misdemeanor - maybe.

I suggest that you contact a Recruiter. Explain everything to him. He'll be able to tell you if you'll be eligible & if waivers are being approved.
