Wright-Patterson Air Force Base DUI Cases; Civilian or Military?

FORT DRUM, N.Y. — Fort Drum soldiers arrested for drunken driving will have their cases handled in military court instead of a civilian one. The northern New York Army post had been publishing the photos of offenders in the post newspaper since last March, but Fort Drum commander Maj. Gen. Michael Oates says that strategy to deter soldiers from driving drunk isn’t working. Oates says there are still too many DWI incidents.

Oates says soldiers arrested for drunken driving now will face the Uniform Code of Military Justice. He says punishment under the code is wide-ranging and could go from a reprimand to a full court-martial. Oates also says it was taking too long to prosecute cases in civilian courts, and he wants to see them concluded more quickly. He announced the new policy Thursday.
