Military Criminal Charges & Penalties
When criminally charged, a member of the military will have to deal with the same penalties that the average citizen would be expected to bear – this includes incarceration, monetary fines and even the possibility of paying restitution to the victim and their family. For a serviceman or woman, this goes one step further. Should they be successfully convicted, they will also be expected to deal with a tarnished reputation and could even be forced to deal with additional penalties levied by the military. They could suffer demotion and could possibly even be given a dishonorable discharge. These can be considerably more serious than the civil penalties that could be levied; it is for this reason that you should not hesitate to get the experienced representation of a knowledgeable military criminal attorney.
