The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) was established by Congress to cover all branches of service including the reserves and the United States Coast Guard. The UCMJ differs from the civilian criminal justice system in many ways and if you have been charged with a military offense it is critical that you have a knowledgeable military criminal defense lawyer by your side. Under the UCMJ, you can be punished for a variety of offenses including:
As you can see, there is a wide range of offenses you could easily commit and be punished for in the military. Furthermore, while many of these crimes result in significant penalties for civilian, these penalties are only amplified for servicemen and women, who are supposed to set an example for their peers and civilians alike.
