Yessir. So long as the military had jurisdiction while you were in the service you can be recalled and tried.
Nothing new here.
Is it worse to be court martialed rather than regular sentencing?
I have no idea.
Back when I was in we called the UCMJ..the Maroon Harpoon. (It was a big burgundy set of law books)
The Uniform Code of Military Justice..that's a bad SOB they can bring you pain fast
Military Courts Martial have completely different procedures than do regular Criminal Courts. And the jury will be comprised of service members and NOT regular peeps from the street.
How so? A court martial is the military equivalent of a trial, with a small twist in that its either a special or general court martial.
Special courts martial have reduced sentencing maximums. There’s options for the equivalent of a bench or a jury trial.
The UCMJ, in conjunction with the Manual for Court Martial spell out the offense, it’s elements, lesser includeds, and available punishments which can range from a reprimand to the death penalty.
Doesn't a guilty charge in a court martial get you a dishonorable discharge also.
That's a whole other set of lifelong problems itself.
I'm thinking their "RESERVE STATUS" is what got them in a Military court versus Civilian court.
