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
  • Reprimand
  • 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.
