Standing Up for Service Members Facing Charges

Military service personnel are held to a very high standard of ethical conduct. Thus, if you are arrested and charged for any type of crime or violation, you will face a tough road in defending your innocence. Furthermore, the stakes are much higher for you as a service member.

Aside from confinement and fines, you may also face the following upon a conviction:

  • Loss of your military benefits
  • Dishonorable discharge
  • Denial of a promotion
  • Put on restricted military duties
  • Barred from specific military career opportunities
  • Loss of certain privileges
  • Loss or denial of security clearances

Also, once you have been convicted, the military does not offer any type of “expungement” of the record. It will follow your military career.

Military court differs from civilian criminal court in that it often hands down harsher punishments due to the higher standards to which you are held. Military courts operate on their own rules, regulations, and laws, such as those of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The UCMJ outlines the subject matter of how courts-martial, military trials, and penalties are conducted and imposed for those in the armed forces. Criminal charges against military service members may end in various ways, such as an adverse adjudication which refers to any finding or sentencing in a military criminal case that is not an acquittal or a dismissal.
