Consequences of Violating the UCMJ

Violating the UCMJ can result in severe consequences, including:

  • Losing your retirement;
  • Losing your medical benefits;
  • Jail time; and
  • Registering as a sex offender, if a sex crime is involved.

Why Hire a Civilian Attorney?

Why should you hire a civilian attorney when the government provides you with a free military attorney from the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps? Typically, you will not be entitled to a free attorney until formal charges are initiated against you. Further, the Judge Advocate assigned to your case may have only 1-2 years of experience under their belt. On top of that, Judge Advocates have regular military duties to perform and may not be available for after-hours contact.

Call Us for High-Quality Criminal Military Defense Services at Fort Meade

The UCMJ provides strict rules that are rigidly enforced for military service members. Unfortunately, when conduct appears to deviate from those standards, an accused service member may be looked down on by their superior officers and, often, their peers. Because of this stigma, it is essential to have a dedicated military criminal defense advocate at your side to prevent prejudicial treatment of your case. At Owens & Kurz, LLC, we are committed to ensuring that those accused of violating the UCMJ are given due process free from the stigma associated with not conforming to the military’s strict rules.
