Special Issues Involving Members of the Armed Forces
Whether you are in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, National Guard, or Reserves, being charged with a crime can carry serious consequences to your military career. In some cases, if you are convicted of a crime, you may lose certain security clearances. Other military discipline can include a drop in rank, suspension from duties, or even dishonorable discharge. Additionally, even if you are not convicted, some commands may be tempted to use your legal problems as an excuse to “railroad” you out of their unit or out of the military entirely. It is important to remember that you have rights. Just like you shouldn’t be bullied by an overzealous prosecutor, you should not allow yourself to be bullied by a military command whose actions against you may not be proper or justified.
