What penalties could I be charged with?

Considered the intermediate court level, a special court martial involves the accused, a military judge, a prosecutor, defense counsel, and at least three members of a jury. As the accused, you can request that at least one-third of your jury be military members. Based on your circumstances, you may also wish to have a trial with only the judge present. Offenses tried at these trials include disrespect, desertion, assault, and disobeying orders.

Penalties are restricted to no more than the following:

  • 12 months of confinement
  • Loss of two-thirds pay per month for six months
  • A bad conduct discharge
  • Other additional repercussions

Your choice of legal representation matters during a special court martial. While the penalties are certainly less severe than those of a general court martial, you cannot afford to retain an attorney without sufficient experience in and out of the courtroom.

Avoid taking chances by retaining our firm's well-qualified Honolulu criminal defense attorney. We know that this can be an overwhelming time, but the sooner you take action, the better. Calling today is the first step toward building your strongest case!
