military_ipimage2Every year, the United States Armed Forces fills its ranks with service members who serve with pride and distinction. Those who enlist in the Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, or Coast Guard must follow the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). If an enlisted member, officer, or Special Operations member violates the UCMJ or a direct order, he or she will face disciplinary action from his or her superiors.

However, much like the civilian legal system, the kind of discipline an individual can face varies widely depending on the crime or act committed.

If a less serious crime is committed, it’s usually handled through a non-judicial process such as an Article 15 hearing, captain’s mast, or office hours. But if a more serious crime is committed, such as assault, rape, or murder, the accused will typically be tried in a court martial process and be provided with a free military lawyer.

If you’re a member of the military, you’ve spent your life protecting your country and defending freedom. In turn, you deserve an attorney who will aggressively defend your freedom should you be charged with a crime. Contact the Law Office of Warren D. Price.
