Special Court Martial
A Special Court Martial is generally convened when the offense/case to be heard is equivalent to a misdemeanor charge in a civilian court.
The types of penalties you could expect can include the following:
- Up to one year in jail/confinement
- Pay grade reductions
- Forfeiture of 2/3 of one month’s pay for up to a year
- Bad conduct discharge
It is important to remember that officers cannot be tried by Special Court Martial.
If you or a loved one has been accused of a crime, please don’t hesitate to contact an experienced military lawyer. With the help and expertise of a competent and knowledgeable attorney, you could be able to receive the outcome you desire.
