| April 20, 2012 | 0 Comments

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

A specialist from Company A, 307th Expeditionary Signal Battalion, 516th Sig. Bde., 311th Sig. Command, was found guilty of two specifications of Article 89, disrespect to a superior commissioned officer; and one specification of Article 90, willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer. The specialist was sentenced to be reduced to E-1 and to be confined for 30 days.

A private from Forward Support Co., 84th Engineer Battalion, 130th Eng. Brigade, 8th TSC, pled guilty to one specification of Article 95, escape from custody; one specification of Article 85, desertion; and one specification of Article 86, absent without leave.

The private was sentenced to be confined for six months and received a bad conduct discharge.

In addition to forfeiture of pay (either adjudged or by operation of law), confinement and a punitive discharge, these Soldiers will have a federal conviction that they must report 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.
