March 2012 Crime and Punishment

Editor’s note: Each month, the legal office publishes the results of actions under the Uniform Code of Military Justice completed during the previous month. Specific individuals who received Nonjudicial Punishment are not identified.

Article 15 Actions:

During February 2012, D-M commanders administered 5 Nonjudicial Punishment actions under Article 15 of the UCMJ. The punishments imposed reflect the commander’s determination of an appropriate punishment after considering the circumstances of the offense and the offender’s record. A “suspended” punishment does not take effect unless the offender engages in additional misconduct or fails to satisfy the conditions of the suspension. The suspension period usually lasts for six months unless a lesser amount is specified.

Failure to Obey– An Airman First Class received reduction to the grade of Airman Basic, suspended forfeiture of $745.00 pay per month for 2 months, restriction for 20 days, 20 days extra duty and a reprimand.

False statement– A Senior Airman received reduction to the grade of Airman First Class, suspended forfeiture of $990.00 pay per month for 2 months and 14 days extra duty.

AWOL – An Airman First Class received reduction to the grade of Airman and 31 days extra duty.

AWOL– An Airman First Class received suspended reduction to the grade of Airman and 15 days extra duty.

 

Administrative Discharges:

During the month of February 2012, D-M commanders completed 11 administrative discharge actions. Of those 11 actions, 2 were for DUI related misconduct, 2 were for fitness failure, 3 were for misconduct, and 4 were for other reasons. Probation and Rehabilitation (P&R) is a 6 to 12 month conditional suspension of the administrative discharge, similar to a probationary period. Under P&R, execution of the approved discharge is conditionally suspended to give the member a chance to prove that he or she is able to meet Air Force standards. Although P&R is an option for commanders in recommending administrative discharge, no members received P&R for any of the February administrative discharge actions.
