Recent NJP questions

I'm currently E-4 in USMC and am facing possibly regimental

I'm currently E-4 in USMC and am facing possibly regimental NJP. I recently got NJP'd for having a female in the barracks and on that day I was supposed to run a CFT. I ended up not running it because it was almost over when I got there and I knew it wouldn't matter since I would not get promoted with a recent NJP. However, they found out couple weeks later that I didn't run my CFT and now are trying to NJP me for that. What can I do about it?

recently I received a field grade article 15, I did not fight it, I understand I made a mistake and I was willing to accept all punishment and I did. recently I found out from my line leader that my TS is being suspended and I understand because of the article 15 but in the AR it states if such adverse action is taken it should have been provided to me in writing and informing me of my rights at not point while I was read my article 15 this was brought up. Im currently deployed and I'm AGR in the state of FL, in the State of Florida you are required to obtain a security clearance to keep your AGR position, this being said if my Clearance is revoked I will lose my AGR position and this will have a great impact on my family, I would like to rebuttal and try to get advise from IG because at not point was I provided any information on my security clearenceJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Im currently deployed in Tittle 10 order in Africa, but Im AGR tittle 32 in the state of floridaJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: yes I have my first line leader, he was informed that our Command Officer doesn't have to inform me of my clearance suspension but it states differently in the AR380-67JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: also at not point was I counseled to inform me I was flagged...

I just need some clarification. I am in the military pending

I just need some clarification. I am in the military pending a case. I was given charges and then my lawyers filed two motions on my behalf for my case. One regarding violating my 4th amendment right and the second regarding the SJA sending up incorrect recommendation from a preliminary hearing I had.

Is that legal and how is that fair when the "government" made these mistakesJA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And just to clarify, have charges been officially filed?Customer: Hawaii military law and there were about 8 different charges with different specification added. I know military law is different just doesn't seem fair and right been going through this for 16 months.
