Members of the United States military are subject to the same laws that traditional members of American society are accustomed to following, as well as those unique to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Drug crimes, sex crimes, theft, computer crimes, fraternization and many other acts are not unheard of as being committed by servicemen and women. The criminal consequences of breaking the law do not go without imposition, and those convicted of a crime should expect to suffer lengthy prison sentences and financial penalties as well.
In addition to criminal or civil penalties suffered by a member of the armed forces, military consequences may also apply. In cases where a serviceman or woman has tarnished their branch of service, or themselves, the military may take other actions beyond civil or criminal courts, to extend further punishment. Those accused or charged may become the focus of a board of inquiry or other military administrative procedure, and can suffer demotion with lost pay, and even dishonorable discharge. It is critical to have a dependable, trusted military criminal defense attorney by your side who can speak for your best interest in court, so that you can possibly avoid such devastating consequences.
