Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Thank you for your quick and thorough answer. Does the statute of limitations differ if the person is convicted of a felony?
When a person is convicted of a felony in a military court, how is the issue of restitution handled. If there was permanent physical damage to the person assaulted?
Does the military have any responsibility to explain these rights to the victim?
Very thorough answers, thank you.
A final question. When a military member is convicted of a crime and discharged from the military. Are the still considered a military member when they serve their time in the military prison, after their probation or are they discharged upon sentencing?
