Grounds for a Military Criminal Investigation

When a military service member is accused of misconduct or criminal activity, he or she will become the subject of a military criminal investigation carried out by the appropriate command, task force, Board of Inquiry, or other entity.

These investigations are conducted when any of the following occur:

  • Injuries
  • Deaths
  • Property loss/destruction
  • Safety violations
  • Criminal acts

An accusation of a criminal act—such as assault, unlawful drug use/sale, theft, or rape/sexual assault—will result in a military criminal investigation.

The Military Criminal Investigation Process

Military criminal investigations are often lengthy, months-long processes. Typically, the process begins when a service member is suspected of or accused of committing an unlawful act, prompting a commanding officer to initiate a preliminary inquiry. During this inquiry, the commander will evaluate evidence supporting the accused’s innocence or guilt, whether there appeared to be aggravating circumstances, and other factors.

Depending on the nature and severity of the offense, the accused will then be subject to Article 15/non-judicial punishment (NJP) or, more commonly, trial by court-martial. Following a court-martial conviction, the case will be reviewed and possibly appealed, depending on the penalties. The defendant may also file an appeal on his or her own.
