Courts-Martial Punishments & Sentencing

Whether you have been accused of insubordination, desertion, conspiracy, assault, rape, or any type of offense, the threat of trial by court-martial is serious. Regardless of the nature of the alleged offense, you could face severe penalties if you are found guilty.

Courts-martial punishments, which are handed down by the jury, often include:

  • Bad conduct discharge
  • Dishonorable discharge
  • Dismissal for officers
  • Up to one year or up to life in prison
  • Confinement including life in prison for an applicable offense
  • Forfeiture of pay and allowances
  • Full reduction in grade
  • Death (when the death penalty applies)

The vast majority of courts-martial lead to convictions. However, following the conviction, you will be granted the opportunity to request a reduced sentence during extenuation and mitigation proceedings. During these proceedings, your courts-martial defense attorney can advocate on your behalf and seek a lesser sentence in your favor.

Appealing a Court-Martial Conviction

Whenever a court-martial results in a conviction, the ruling will be reviewed by the convening authority, or the CA. While the CA is not allowed to escalate the initial sentence, he or she can reduce it, uphold it, or even dismiss the case altogether. Typically, the CA will work with a judge advocate who will provide legal counsel regarding the sentence and the appropriate course of action.

In addition to seeking a reduced sentence, you may request an appeal of a court-martial conviction. Certain courts-martial convictions, including those with a sentence of at least one year in prison or unfavorable discharge, receive an automatic appeal; others will require an official request for review.

Protecting Your Rights

At every stage of the court-martial process, including the CA review and any additional appeals, you have the right to an attorney. This is critical, as an attorney can help you navigate the complex proceedings involved. The system generally does not work in your favor—but our Fort Campbell court-martial defense lawyer knows how to fight back against this system and work to protect your rights.

Sean Flood brings extensive experience, including experience as a judge advocate, to every case he handles. He can assist you during the initial stages of a trial by court-martial, the CA review, the appeal, and even with redress of grievances issues and official complaints of improper treatment.
