As we continue to hear the drumbeat for more convictions, harsher sentences, and reduced access to clemency in the sexual assault world, the fallout from MCRD Parris Island continues. As Dwight ML noted the other day, CAAF has granted several petitions relating to some intemperate and nonjudicial remarks of the military judge assigned in that area. Now, see United States v. Chambers.
Chambers guilty plea was taken (no problem with that), and sentence adjudged the day of the nonjudicial remarks of the military judge.
The TC argued for 90 days and the DC 30 days as a confinement sentence. The military judge gave eight months.
NMCCA set aside the sentence and ordered a rehearing (or a sentence of “no punishment).
