Understand the Level of Your Court Martial
There are three levels of courts martial: general, special and summary.
Summary Court Martial
The lowest level of court martial is summary, which is used in minor offenses.
Commanders can send a case to court martial. The penalties imposed in
a summary court martial can be:
- Confinement for a month or less
- Hard labor without confinement for 45 days or less
- Restriction for two months or less
- Forfeiture of 2 / 3 of your pay for a month or less
- Reduction of enlisted grade
Special Court Martial
A special court martial is for misdemeanor crimes. The penalties imposed
cannot include death, dishonorable discharge or dismissal. A penalty of
pay forfeiture of two-thirds of your pay cannot exceed one year in duration,
and you cannot be confined for more than one year.
General Court Martial
A general court martial is for felony criminal offenses. There are heavy
penalties that can be imposed upon you if you are convicted. This is the
type of court martial you will face if you are accused of any of the following offenses:
- Sexual assault
- Aggravated assault
- Drug trafficking / distribution
- Crimes related to child pornography
- Some high-value theft crimes
If you are convicted in a general court martial, you will face extremely
heavy penalties, and your military career will come to an end, as well
as your freedom. You must have defense counsel that knows what to do to
help you defend against the terrible repercussions of a conviction, which
in some crimes, is death.
