8th TSC

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

A private first class from 558th Military Police Company, 728th MP Battalion, 8th MP Brigade, 8th TSC, was found guilty of two specifications of Article 120, aggravated sexual assault of a child over 12 years old; one specification of Article 92, failure to obey an order or regulation; one specification of Article 90, willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer; and two specifications of Article 134, possession of child pornography.

The Soldier was sentenced to be reduced in rank to E1, private; to forfeit all pay and allowances; to be confined for six years; and to be discharged from the Army with a dishonorable discharge.

Besides forfeiture of pay, either adjudged or by operation of law, confinement and a punitive discharge, the Soldier will also have a federal conviction that the Soldier must report 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.
