Command and Criminal Investigations

Know Your Rights and Protec Your Career

Command and criminal investigations are initiated when the military suspects that a service member has committed some offense or wrongdoing. The investigation becomes a fact finding mission for the government to show the offense was committed. Just because an investigation was initiated does not mean the service members is guilty of an offense. However, the service member will be contacted for questioning at some point. Whether it is a command investigation or a criminal investigation, each service member has rights under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). It is important to contact an experienced military criminal defense attorney as soon as you believe you are under investigation to ensure your rights are not violated.
