Schriever brings justice with UCMJ actions

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The Air Force conducted special court-martial proceedings against a 50th Civil Engineer Squadron Airman April 1 at Schriever Air Force Base.

Airman 1st Class Shaun Chenard, 50 CES, was charged with and pled guilty to using cocaine on two occasions in the fall of 2013. The drug use was originally discovered through a random urinalysis sample obtained by the Schriever Drug Demand Reduction Program in September 2013. Chenard provided a second urinalysis sample in October 2013, and this sample also tested positive for cocaine.

The Special Court-Martial, consisting of four officers, convened on April 1 to adjudge a sentence in the case. After hearing from several government and defense witnesses and deliberating for several hours, the court members sentenced Airman Chenard to a bad conduct discharge, three months confinement, forfeiture of $1,021.00 pay per month for three months, and reduction to the grade of E-1. Chenard is currently serving his jail sentence in the Teller County Confinement Facility.

Wrongful use of controlled substances is illegal and punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. This includes marijuana, despite its recent legalization in the state of Colorado. Questions regarding any of the above should be directed to the legal office at 567-5050.
