    Panel gave 25, court recommended reduction to 20, CA gave it – now Clemency to 15.

    To see how the Government can defend the TC for their failure to turn over exculpatory evidence and then take farther by arguing to the contrary will be interesting.

    Confessing error?

    Can someone please explain to me how in the hell the C&P board issued a decision less than a year after this officer’s conviction? And, why o’ why, is this not the poster child case for an extraordinary relief petition at least being entertained at the service courts, or CAAF?

    The C&P board reviews all convictions of soldiers within 9 months of the date of incarceration. This is an “unwritten” rule that has been instituted in recent years with the increase of soldier prosecutions from incidents arising in a war zone.

    Jersey Shore, what would the writ petition say? The case is on appeal now at ACCA.
