He’s an incredible story from Kate Wiltrout of the Virginian-Pilot, called to our attention by a friend o’CAAFlog. A Navy lieutenant was being tried by a special court-martial in Norfolk. As we all know, an officer can be neither confined nor dismissed by a special court-martial. The TC nevertheless asked for a sentence that included confinement for 30 days. Judge Carlos then adjudged a sentence that included confinement for 90 days — before realizing that he couldn’t and rescinding that portion of the sentence.
