Administrative Actions & Article 15 Nonjudicial Punishment
Even in cases where misconduct is not a court-martial offense, being found guilty can negatively impact your reputation, status, and future prospects. These types of misconduct often lead to administrative actions and Article 15 nonjudicial punishments. Article 15 punishments are imposed by commanding officers instead of court-martial judges and are ordered at his or her discretion. They are generally based on the nature of the offense and the rank of the alleged offender.
Examples of potential punishments from administrative actions and nonjudicial punishments can include:
- Arrest in quarters
- Restriction to certain limits
- Forfeiture of pay
- Extra duties
