Officer Misconduct

Military Criminal Defense Attorney Fighting for Your Rights

Misconduct may be grounds for the involuntary discharge of a service member characterized as, "under other than honorable conditions." A general condition may be granted for cases involving minor misconduct, but this is rare. Potential grounds for administrative discharge as based upon misconduct may include: drug use, commission of a serious offense, a civilian conviction, pattern of misconduct, or minor disciplinary infractions. Unlike a discharge based upon physical, mental or performance reasons, a misconduct separation denotes that the service member is at fault for his or her misconduct. Many drug offenses are handled as administrative discharges on the grounds of misconduct.

Many of the actions addressed in officer misconduct discharges may also be addressed by court-martial. In some cases, undergoing an administrative discharge may limit the service member’s rights because he or she is not granted the protection a court-martial setting may offer. A service member may also face a misconduct discharge after he or she is acquitted at court-martial.
