Military DUI? Who Will Punish You?

If you get a military DUI you can be punished by three different (and overlapping) authorities.  The first potential punishment comes from the civilian courts. It includes a loss of driving privileges, fines, incarceration and other possible penalties.  Typically, these punishments occur after being stopped on suspicion of drunk driving while outside the military base.  In addition, the military cannot administer action under the UCMJ for the same offense if you are being charged by civilian authorities. This applies regardless of the outcome of the civilian case. This blog has a section devoted to the various punishment and their consequences.Read our...

Military DUI: Must I Self-Report? by Richard T. Brown USAF Judge Advocate (ret)

One Strike and You’re OUT. An Update on the Self-Reporting Requirement.  The military has always been the employer of last resort.  When the economy is good the military is hard pressed to meet recruitment.  When the economy is bad the military can and does get very picky.  Today the civilian authorities seem to agree that the best place to cut federal spending is the military.  Force reduction has been policy in the past and will be again in the future.  The self-reporting requirement is a force management tool.For the individual member the best advice is not to self- report.  As a...
