January Justice Files

355th Fighter Wing Judge Advocate

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 January 2013, D-M commanders administered three 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 a suspended reduction to the grade of airman, suspended forfeitures of $849 pay per month for two months, 30 days extra duty, and a reprimand.

Failure to Obey – An airman first class received a suspended reduction to the grade of airman, 10 days extra duty, and a reprimand.

False Official Statement – A technical sergeant received a reduction to the grad of staff sergeant and 45 days extra duty.
