The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, publishes the results of the following recent courts-martial.
A private (E-2) from Company B, Warrior Transition Battalion, Schofield Barracks, was found guilty of two specifications of Article 128, assault and aggravated assault; one specification of Article 134, communicating a threat; one specification of Article 95, resisting arrest; one specification of Article 91, disobeying a lawful order of an NCO; and one specification of Article 90, disobeying a lawful order of an officer.
The private was sentenced to be reduced to a private E-1, confinement for three years and a bad conduct discharge.
In addition to 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 a Soldier of many rights, such as the right to purchase and maintain firearms and the right to vote.
