The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, 25th Infantry Division, publishes the result of the following recent courts-martial.

• A private (E-2) from Troop C, 2nd Squadron, 14th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, was found guilty of two specifications of Article 125, sodomy with a child under the age of 16. He was sentenced to reduction to private (E-1), forfeiture of $1,000 pay for two months and confinement for two months.

• A sergeant from Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, 2nd Sqdn., 14th Cav. Regt., 2nd SBCT, was found guilty of three specifications of Article 86, failing to go to his appointed place of duty, and two specifications of Article 92, dereliction of duty. He was sentenced to reduction to private (E-1), confinement for 60 days 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.
