United States v. SFC B.C.

Article 92, Dereliction of Duty; Artilce 107, False Official Statement; Article 134, Impeding an Investigation

An overzealous command prosecuted SFC B.C. for not controlling the driver of a vehicle in a vehicular manslaughter case. SFC B.C. was asleep in the back seat at the time, while two Captains were also passengers in the car. The driver was a fellow SFC. The command gave the officers General Officer Article 15s and took the enlisted to summary courts-martial.  SFC B.C. turned down a Summary Court-Martial and fought back at a Special Court-Martial.

Result: SFC B.C. was acquitted and will eventually retire.
