O-5: Lieutenant Colonel. Article 134 UCMJ. U.S. Marines. Big time trouble.
From the staff of the World Tribune.
ACTIVE DUTY SERVING MILITARY OFFICER PLACED IN THE BRIG PENDING ARRAINGMENT AND POSSIBLE TRIAL.
"An officer in the U.S. Marines [O-5] who slammed top Pentagon brass for the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan was jailed hours before those leaders were set to testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee on the Afghan disaster."
"Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller was arrested on Monday and sent to the brig. He is scheduled to appear before a military hearing on Thursday [30 September]"
This field grade officer [usually the rank of a battalion commander] in BIG trouble.
Will be subject to court martial probable conviction. Violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice [UCMJ].
Violations of UCMJ Article 134 more than likely. CONTEMPTUOUS words directed at higher authority. Among the violations of Article 134 to include: * Offenses involving disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces. * Offenses involving conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.
Normally an officer when faced with charges under UCMJ are allowed to resign. Continued Facebook postings by Scheller only critical of higher military authority representing a direct challenge from the ranks that could not be ignored.
