Understanding Military Criminal Law
By James R. Klimaski — Military criminal law reflects the constraints of military service. Although
service members enjoy basic constitutional rights, they are also subject to restraints the military believes necessary for discipline and achieving a cohesive fighting force. The military member agrees to
these strictures when s/he signs the enlistment contract of service. Once the contract is in effect –
which occurs when the individual takes the formal oath of office – the service member cannot simply
quit. Conversely, the military cannot simply dismiss the member. Military service is not a civilian job,
i.e., employment-at-will or employment contract.
The Military operates under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), 10 U.S.C. § 801, et. seq.,
rather than civilian criminal statutes. The UCMJ criminalizes acts that are not crimes in the civilian
context. For example, concerning the service contract, the UCMJ outlaws desertion, absence without
leave (AWOL) and missing movement, which means failing to report when one's unit is deployed,
under orders, to another location. To ensure orderly operations and secure the chain of command, the
UCMJ also criminalizes disruptive actions such as insubordination, or failure to follow orders or regulations. There are a few limits on free speech, but the military's efforts to restrain all speech have
failed.
Additionally, the military proscribes private individual behavior such as fraternization between
service members of different ranks, adultery and sodomy. Military sodomy laws have so far withstood
Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003), in which the U.S. Supreme Court found civilian antisodomy laws unconstitutional.
Further, the military asserts jurisdiction over service members for bad behavior while on leave or
out of uniform. Finally, the UCMJ contains a catch all provision, Article 134, criminalizing acts that discredit the military and are prejudicial to good order and discipline.
The military enforces the UCMJ through a multi- tiered system of forums, ranging from non-judicial
punishment to the general court-martial, a proceeding akin to a civilian felony criminal trial with judge
and jury. The UCMJ contains provisions describing both non-judicial and judicial punishments. The service member's Commander, the Convening Authority, decides whether to prosecute the case, determines the forum, appoints the jury panel and ultimately approves any adjudged punishment.
Article 15: Punishment Not a Criminal Conviction, But Can Result in Criminal Arrest Record
Article 15 of the UCMJ codifies non-judicial punishments. An example of an act subject to an Article
15 is reporting late to an assignment or work. The closest civilian comparison is a minor traffic
offense. In a civilian setting, a hearing examiner would adjudicate such minor infractions. In the
military, however, the service member's commanding officer serves as the hearing examiner.
Punishment under Article 15 is not a criminal conviction.
Even so, the military sometimes reports Article 15 arrests to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As
a result, years later the former service member discovers that she or he has a criminal arrest record
for something that may not even be a criminal offense and for which the service member was found
not guilty. The military does not have a formal process to expunge arrests, as do civilian courts.
"These documents or requests are being public monitored and tracked for quality assurance under the FIOA Request"
Because Article 15 punishment is "non-judicial," the service member may appeal the decision only
to his or her next higher Commander. The military's formal criminal appeals system does not include
jurisdiction over Article 15 punishments.
Courts-Martial: The Military's Formal Criminal Adjudication
Courts-martial constitute the military's formal criminal adjudication. There are three court-martial
levels: (I) the lowest, summary court-martial; (2) special court-martial; and (3) the highest, general
court-martial. Conviction in either a special or general court-martial constitutes a federal criminal conviction.
A summary court-martial, a procedure the military rarely uses, is more formal than an Article 15, but
the punishment is not a criminal conviction. One individual, not the service member's commanding
officer and usually a military lawyer, presides over a summary court-martial and acts as prosecutor,
judge and jury. The military does not provide the service member with military counsel for a summary
court- martial. The service member, however, may bring a representative, including a civilian
attorney, to defend him or her.
The principal difference between a special court- martial and a general court-martial is the level of
punishment each can impose. Special courts-martial convictions essentially constitute misdemeanors.
Such a conviction carries no more than a one-year confinement, reduction in rank, pay forfeiture and
a Bad Conduct Discharge, even when the offense authorizes a higher maximum punishment.
A general court-martial, however, may impose confinement up to the offense's maximum sentence,
including life imprisonment or the death penalty. No service member has been put to death since
1961, although since then general courts-martial have handed down several death sentences.
CO's Substantial Powers Over Courts Martial Open to Serious Abuse
The commanding officer, having general court- martial Convening Authority, chooses the level of
court-martial and the make-up of the jury. These powers are open to serious abuse. The Manual for
Courts-Martial (MCM), the rules or procedure for courts-martial, limits the Convening Authority's
power to affect the court-martial's outcome. A Presidential Executive Order, the MCM undergoes
revision at least every other year. The President must formally approve the changes.
After preferring the charges, the Commander selects an Article 32 investigating officer. This investigator gathers the facts of the case and recommends whether the charge merits a general courtmartial. The Commander can accept or reject the investigator's recommendation without explanation.
If the Commander refers the matter to either a special or general court-martial, she or he selects the
jury (court panel) whose members must be of equal or greater rank than the accused. An enlisted
service member can require that at least one-third of the panel member come from the enlisted ranks.
Military courts tolerate liberal voir dire, permitting peremptory challenges and those for cause.
To Decrease Command Influence, Defense Bar and Judiciary Are Independent
To decrease command influence, every service has an independent defense bar and judiciary. The
independent trial defense service details a defense lawyer to the defendant (the "accused," in military
"These documents or requests are being public monitored and tracked for quality assurance under the FIOA Request"
parlance), who does not have to pay for this representation. The accused may request a specific military lawyer for his/her defense and has the right to hire a civilian lawyer at her or his own expense.
The Chief Judge of the trial judiciary for each service branch appoints a military judge to a case.
The court-martial generally follows the Federal Rules of Evidence. Trial procedures are similar to
those in civilian courts. The jury's decision, however, need not be unanimous, except for sentencing
in a capital punishment case. The Convening Authority reviews any conviction after the trial and may
grant clemency or otherwise lower the sentence. If the sentence consists of a punitive discharge
and/or one year of confinement, the case is automatically appealed to the Court of Criminal Appeals
for the respective service. These judges are military officers.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces (CAAF) provides a second appeal level.
The judges are civilians whom the President has nominated and the Senate has confirmed. The final
resort is to appeal through a petition for certiorari to the United States Supreme Court.
The military operates under its own criminal laws and procedures. Any unfairness stems from those
who control the proceedings.

General Instructions
considered a U.S. person if you are:
Section references are to the Internal Revenue Code unless
otherwise noted.
• An individual who is a U.S. citizen or U.S. resident alien,
Purpose of Form
A person who is required to file an information return with the
IRS must obtain your correct taxpayer identification number (TIN)
to report, for example, income paid to you, real estate
transactions, mortgage interest you paid, acquisition or
abandonment of secured property, cancellation of debt, or
contributions you made to an IRA.
Use Form W-9 only if you are a U.S. person (including a
resident alien), to provide your correct TIN to the person
requesting it (the requester) and, when applicable, to:
1. Certify that the TIN you are giving is correct (or you are
waiting for a number to be issued),
2. Certify that you are not subject to backup withholding, or
3. Claim exemption from backup withholding if you are a U.S.
exempt payee. If applicable, you are also certifying that as a
U.S. person, your allocable share of any partnership income from
a U.S. trade or business is not subject to the withholding tax on
foreign partners' share of effectively connected Income.
Note. If a requester gives you a form other than Form W-9 to
request your TIN, you must use the requester's form if it is
substantially similar to this Form W-9.
• A partnership, corporation, company, or association created or
organized in the United States or under the laws of the United
States,
• An estate (other than a foreign estate), or
• A domestic trust (as defined in Regulations section
301.7701-7).
Special rules for partnerships. Partnerships that conduct a
trade or business in the United States are generally required to
pay a withholding tax on any foreign partners share of income
from such business. Further, in certa:n cases where a Form W-9
has not been received, a partnership is required to presume that
a partner is a foreign person, and pay the withholding tax.
Therefore, if you are a U.S. person that is a partner in a
partnership conducting a trade or business in the United States,
provide Form W-9 to the partnership to establish your U.S.
status and avoid withholding on your share of partnership
income.
The person who gives Form W-9 to the partnership for
purposes of establishing its U.S. status and avoiding withholding
on its allocable share of net income from the partnership
conducting a trade or business in the United States is in the
following cases:
• The U.S owner of a disregarded entity and not the entity,

• The U.S. grantor or other owner of a grantor trust and not the
trust, and
• The U.S. trust (other than a grantor trust) and not the
beneficiaries of the trust.
4. The IRS tells you that you are subject to backup
withholding because you did not report all your interest and
dividends on your tax return (for reportable interest and
dividends only), or
Foreign person. If you are a foreign person, do not use Form
W-9. Instead, use the appropriate Form W-8 (see Publication
515, Withholding of Tax on Nonresident Aliens and Foreign
Entities).
5. You do not certify to the requester that you are not subject
to backup withholding under 4 above (for reportable interest and
dividend accounts opened after 1983 only).
Certain payees and payments are exempt from backup
withholding. See the instructions below and the separate
Instructions for the Requester of Form W-9.
Also see Special rules for partnerships on page 1.
Nonresident alien who becomes a resident alien. Generally,
only a nonresident alien individual may use the terms of a tax
treaty to reduce or eliminate U.S. tax on certain types of income.
However, most tax treaties contain a provision known as a
"saving clause." Exceptions specified in the saving clause may
permit an exemption from tax to continue for certain types of
income even after the payee has otherwise become a U.S.
resident alien for tax purposes.
If you are a U.S. resident alien who is relying on an exception
contained in the saving clause of a tax treaty to claim an
exemption from U.S. tax on certain types of income, you must
attach a statement to Form W-9 that specifies the following five
items:
1. The treaty country. Generally, this must be the same treaty
under which you claimed exemption from tax as a nonresident
alien.
2. The treaty article addressing the income.
3. The article number (or location) in the tax treaty that
contains the saving clause and Its exceptions.
4. The type and amount of income that qualifies for the
exemption from tax.
Penalties
Failure to furnish TIN. If you fail to furnish your correct TIN to a
requester, you are subject to a penalty of $50 for each such
failure unless your failure is due to reasonable cause and not to
willful neglect.
Civil penalty for false information with respect to
withholding. If you make a false statement with no reasonable
basis that results in no backup withholding you are subject to a
$500 penalty.
Criminal penalty for falsifying information. Willfully falsifying
certifications or affirmations may subject you to cnminal
penalties including fines and/or imprisonment.
Misuse of TINs. If the requester discloses or uses TINs in
violation of federal law, the requester may be subject to civil and
criminal penalties.
Specific Instructions
5. Sufficient facts to justify the exemption from tax under the
terms of the treaty article.
Name
Example. Article 20 of the U.S.-China income tax treaty allows
an exemption from tax for scholarship income received by a
Chinese student temporarily present in the United States. Under
U.S. law, this student will become a resident alien for tax
purposes if his or her stay in the United States exceeds 5
calendar years. However, paragraph 2 of the first Protocol to the
U.S.-China treaty (dated April 30, 1984) allows the provisions of
Article 20 to continue to apply even after the Chinese student
becomes a resident alien of the United States. A Chinese
student who qualifies for this exception (under paragraph 2 of
the first protocol) and is relying on this exception to claim an
exemption from tax on his or her scholarship or fellowship
income would attach to Form W-9 a statement that includes the
information described above to support that exemption.
If you are a nonresident alien or a foreign entity not subject to
backup withholding, give the requester the appropriate
completed Form W-8.
If you are an individual, you must generally enter the name
shown on your income tax return. However, if you have changed
your last name, for instance, due to marriage without informing
the Social Security Administration of the name change, enter
your first name, the last name shown on your social seemly
card. and your new last name.
What is backup withholding? Persons making certain payments
to you must under certain conditions withhold and pay to the
IRS 28% of such payments. This is called "backup withholding."
Payments that may be subject to backup withholding include
interest, tax-exempt interest, dividends, broker and barter
exchange transactions, rents, royalties, nonemployee pay, and
certain payments from fishing boat operators. Real estate
transactions are not subject to backup withholding.
You will not be subject to backup withholding on payments
you receive if you give the requester your correct TIN, make the
proper certifications, and report all your taxable interest and
dividends on your tax return.
Payments you receive will be subject to backup
withholding if:
1. You do not furnish your TIN to the requester.
2. You do not certify your TIN when required (see the Part II
instructions on page 3 for details).
