Q: Why does the Hawaii Army Weekly publish court-martial findings?

A: The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate releases the results of recent courts-martial for publication to inform the community of military justice trends and to deter future misconduct by Soldiers.

The Offices of the Staff Judge Advocate, 8th Theater Sustainment Command and 25th Infantry Division, publish the results of the following recent courts-martial.

A private first class from 82nd Engineer Support Company, 65th Eng. Battalion, 130th Eng. Brigade, 8th TSC, pled guilty to one specification of Article 92, dereliction in the performance of duties, and four specifications of Article 134, secreting mail and possession of child pornography. The Soldier was sentenced to confinement for six months and received a bad conduct discharge.

A private from 66th Eng. Co. (rear), 1st Bn., 14th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Bde. Combat Team (Rear Provisional), 25th ID, was found guilty of one specification of Article 120, sexual intercourse with a minor, and one specification of Article 134, adultery. The private was sentenced to confinement for 60 days and received a bad conduct discharge.

A private from 2nd Bn., 25th Aviation Regt., 25th Combat Avn. Bde., 25th ID, was found guilty of one specification of Article 107, false official statement; one specification of Article 122, robbery; two specifications of Article 128, assault; and one specification of Article 129, burglary. The private was sentenced to forfeit $1,000 pay, per month, for three months; to perform hard labor without confinement for 90 days; and to receive a bad conduct discharge from the service.

A private first class from Co. E, 2nd Bn., 25th Avn. Regt., 25th CAB, 25th ID, was found guilty of one specification of Article 81, conspiracy; one specification of Article 122, robbery; and one specification of Article 128, assault. The Soldier was reduced to the grade of E-1 (private), was fined $2,500, will be confined for 90 days and will be discharged from the service with a bad conduct discharge.

In addition to forfeiture of pay (either adjudged or by operation of law), confinement and a punitive discharge, each Soldier above will have a federal conviction that must be reported when filling out a job application. A federal conviction strips the Soldier of many rights, such as the right to purchase and maintain firearms and the right to vote.
