The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, publishes the results of the following recent courts-martial:

A captain from Headquarters and Headquarters Company, U.S. Army-Pacific, pled guilty, Dec. 15, 2010, to two specifications of Article 120, indecent sexual conduct; one specification of Article 133, conduct unbecoming of an officer and a gentleman; and two specifications of Article 134, fraternization. The captain was sentenced to be reprimanded, to dismissal from the service and forfeiture of $1,500 pay, per month, for three months.

A private from 561st Engineer Co., 84th Eng. Battalion, 130th Eng. Brigade, 8th TSC, was found guilty, Jan. 5, of one specification of Article 128, assault consummated by battery. The private was sentenced to confinement for five months and forfeiture of $750 pay, per month, for five months.

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