I am researching UCMJ offenses. I found your response few years back that article 92 dereliction of duty statute of limitations is 5 years. Is that during wartime as well (Iraq/Afghanistan)? Or is it a capital offense because it is wartime? The internet searches I have done are unclear as to how dereliction of duty is treated specifically in wartime.

Question about an adultery charge for a friend. he is a E-7 in the air force accused of adultery. The woman he was supposedly seeing contacted his command. She sent text messages, and emails, as well as pics of them hanging out. None of the pics are nudes or of a sexual nature. She spoke to someone on the phone but did not see anyone face to face. She has since contacted his command stating she does not wish to pursue action and that she will not provide any further information, and that she will not make any formal statements or authenticate what shes already given. Can he still be prosecured without her cooperation

My EAOS is 29 April. Today I was just informed by my command

My EAOS is 29 April. Today I was just informed by my command that I will be put on legal hold pending an investigation from NCIS. This has been going on for quite some time now for about 14 months. NCIS tried to kick it to the FEDS but the FEDS kicked it back? Is that good, bad, or nothing? It is now with the JAG and has been since about December of 2015. Can my command place me on legal hold past me separation date just for an investigation, or do charges actually have to be preferred? This case is involving financial fraud.
