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

A sergeant first class from the 95th Engineer Company, 65th Eng. Battalion, 130th Eng. Brigade, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, pled guilty to one specification of Article 128, assault; and one specification of Article 90, disobeying a superior officer. The Solider was sentenced to a reduced grade of specialist and received hard labor without confinement for three months.

A sergeant from the 71st Chemical Co., 8th Military Police Bde., 8th TSC, was found guilty of four specifications of Article 86, being absent without leave; one specification of Article 90, disobeying a superior officer; three specifications of Article 91, disobeying a lawful order and disrespect; and seven specifications of Article 112a, wrongful use and possession of controlled substances. The Soldier was sentenced to a reduced grade of private, confinement for six months and will receive a bad conduct discharge.

In addition to forfeiture of pay, confinement and a punitive discharge, these Soldiers will also 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.
