United States v. Captain Floyd K. Kerr


On April 14, Capt. Floyd K. Kerr, 50th Operations Support Squadron, was acquitted by a General Court-Martial of one charge and one specification of Article 112a, Uniform Code of Military Justice, wrongful use of marijuana.  The case was tried by a panel of officer members.



The 50th Space Wing Legal Office reminds Airmen marijuana use and possession within the state of Colorado is legal for civilians; however, it remains criminal for military members.  Airmen who use, possess, distribute or otherwise become involved with marijuana could be investigated and potentially prosecuted.  Additionally, fraternization is an unprofessional relationship that can degrade morale, good order, discipline and unit cohesion.  It is the responsibility of all Airmen to ensure officers and enlisted members maintain professional relationships at all times.  Please learn from the mistakes and crimes of your fellow Airmen and refrain from jeopardizing your career and your future.  Questions regarding the above information should be directed to the legal office at 567-5050.
