- A sentence that was not appropriate for the crime committed
- An error or mistake was made by the military judge
- There was not sufficient evidence to warrant a conviction
- The defendant was subjected to an unreasonable multiplication of charges
- A mistake or wrongdoing occurred in the dismissal of a jury/panel member

About Courts-Martial Appeals
Every U.S. military service has a Court of Criminal Appeals which can correct any legal error it finds and reduce what it considers to be an excessive sentence. It cannot change a “not guilty” verdict to a “guilty” verdict and cannot increase the sentence originally imposed after the courts-martial. Every Court of Criminal Appeals may review courts-martial that have resulted in sentences ranging from the death penalty all the way to dishonorable discharge or imprisonment of one year or more.
Certain appeals may also be conducted by the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces or by the United States Supreme Court, depending upon the particular situation.
