The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, publishes the result of the following recent courts-martial.
A private from 540th Quartermaster Company, 524th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 8th Military Police Brigade, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, Schofield Barracks, pled guilty to four specifications of Article 112a, wrongful use, possession and introduction of marijuana.
The private was sentenced to forfeit $994 pay per month for 10 months, confinement for 10 months 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 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.
