I recently got caught violating curfew in korea without a

Hi. I recently got caught violating curfew in korea without a battlebuddy. Another thing is that i tried to play the system by signing out of my barracks saying that i had a battlebuddy, which i did not. I heard from a battle that i got recommended for ucmj action and the command sergeant major is willing to sign on the form. From what i was told by my leaders, my caseis going to be brought to the brigade and taken fromthere on i guess because i was caught by the MPs. I know i did the wrong thing, and i am willing to pay for it. My question is, what could be the maximum , the minimum, and an ideal punishment ican get under ucmj action?? Is it article 15? Article 92??

I was accused of taking narcotics from my clinic, three

I was accused of taking narcotics from my clinic, three years ago. I was never given an article 15 and no administrative action was taken towards me. My chain of command believed it was another soldier in the clinic. The investigating commander and JAG counsel found no evidence I took the medication and did not proceed with charges. I retired from the military after serving 20 years and discharged with and honorable. Will all of this show up in a background check and will this stop me from seeking employment in the private and government sector.

Recently, my spouse (an army major) was accused of

Recently, my spouse (an army major) was accused of plagiarism while enrolled in a service school via distance learning. The issue, is that she allegedly plagiarized a paper I had submitted in 2015 while also enrolled in the same school. I was recently contacted by the investigating officer who essentially accused me of plagiarism in spite of the fact that I had submitted my paper in April of 2015 and subsequently graduated the course in June of 2015. My spouse is still in the course and submitted the paper in September of 2016. I did not help or provide any assistance with regard to the assignment in question, so it is fairly obvious she copied my old paper without my knowledge since it was saved on a laptop we both use. My immediate questions are: Can the school hold me responsible and or punish me, e.g. GOMOR, even though I graduated 18 months ago and the alleged misconduct occurred last month? Can the school even run a 15-6 on me when I am completely outside its chain of command? I did provide the IO a statement stating very plainly that I did not commit plagiarism, that I did not provide my spouse unauthorized academic assistance and that I was no longer enrolled in the school.
