Schriever brings justice with UCMJ actions

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --

The following actions were taken against Schriever Air Force Base Airmen under the Uniform Code of Military Justice and other Air Force regulations from April 1 to June 30.

 

These incidents serve as a reminder of the expectations that exist for members of the 50th Space Wing.  They demonstrate the real consequences for those who violate the law and Air Force regulations.  There is no standard punishment when an action is taken.  Rather, each finding and punishment decision is based on the unique facts and circumstances of the incident, as well as the member’s individual circumstances and any response the member provides.

 

COURTS-MARTIAL:

 

An airman first class was convicted by a special court-martial of two specifications of wrongful use of marijuana, two specifications or possession of marijuana, and two specifications of introduction of marijuana on to a military installation.  The individual received a sentence of four months confinement, reduction to airman basic and a bad conduct discharge.

 

A senior airman was convicted by a special court-martial for unlawfully carrying a concealed weapon, and was acquitted of two specifications of aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon.  The Airman received reduction to airman first class, and restriction to the individual’s residence, Schriever AFB, and the distance between the two for two months.

Please do not hesitate to use first sergeants, chaplain, Airman and Family Readiness Center, and Health and Wellness Center for assistance.  You can also learn from the mistakes of your peers.  Failing to report to work on time, failing to go to your appointments, drinking underage, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, use of marijuana is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated.  The Air Force takes fitness very seriously and failing in any one component will result in an overall failure for that test.  Continued failure to maintain Air Force minimum physical fitness standards will likely result in disciplinary action and possibly administrative discharge.  Whether you are an airman basic, an NCO or an officer, everyone is expected to maintain Air Force standards.  Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action or even separation from the Air Force. 

Please use the numerous support systems the Air Force provides to ensure you have a successful Air Force career.  If you have questions or concerns, contact the wing legal office at 567-5050.
