The other day my squad leader told me to go home to my

The other day my squad leader told me to go home to my barracks room because I have a profile that would not allow me to participate in the training that was occurring that day. So did that, and then later that day I left my room to go look at a vehicle I was going to by. Now I am being punished by having to stay in my room all day and I have to check in at our staff duty desk. Is this punishment even legal, and I didn't even do anything wrong. He is saying that I disobeyed a direct order cause I left my room. He told me to go home for the day. How can I be punished.

I'm 19 years old, I've been in the navy for 11 months and

My name is***** 19 years old, I've been in the navy for 11 months and I'm about to go to a DRB (disciplinary review board) for being caught stealing $87 worth of goods from walmart (lingerie and jewelry). I concealed the items in my reusable grocery bag which I used as a purse. My chief had to come down to the walmart to prove that I lived in the barracks and he was shown the tapes and everything. I was very cooperative. Charges are pressed against me and I'm currently awaiting to go to my arraignment.Before this, I have been an exceptional sailor. At my 6 month long A school I graduated top of my class as ATI Honor Grad, I had over 40 volunteer hours, and I got an outstanding on my PRT. 3 months ago I arrived at my ultimate command; all of my quals are done but I hadn't started volunteering yet. I did just join my command's MWR but did so only a couple weeks ago and have only attended a couple meetings. I plan to volunteer this weekend. My LPO's adored me, as I was a very hard working worker.Knowing all of this, will I likely go to Captain's Mast? Will they look at the things I achieved while in A school or will they only look at what I've achieved whilst at my current command? Will I be separated from the Navy? Would I get a dishonorable discharge if they did? Of course you don't know the exact answers, but if you know of how a similar case turned out, it would help settle my nerves immensely!Thank you
