USFK Court Martial Results for February 2013

USFK has not posted court martial results since November 2012 and for some reason has decided to completely skip December 2012 and January 2013. Due to them not publishing these results it will be difficult for me to compile USFK crime statistics for each of these years. Hopefully someone will get around to posting the results.

Something of interest I found in the court martial results was the disparity of sentencing between someone convicted of sexual assault and another person convicted of attempted sexual assault. Somebody better go call the Democratic Senators so they can go and threaten some commanders for not throwing the guy in jail. For the ROK criminal prosecutions they have the sentences for the soldiers that were smuggling in drugs to sell in Korea. They all got off pretty light in my opinion. I wish the ROK courts would lock these guys up for a long time.

Anyway here is the February 2013 Court Martial Results:

    2 & 3, sleeping with the troops that you are leading then trying to lie about it or cover it up will trigger that charge, at least that was what I saw when I was in. I’ve been out of uniform for some years though. Of course when you are single & doing the same you end up with a 19 year old married to a 42 year old E-7 to save his career.

    An awful LOT of DUI, especially in Uijeungu area.

    What kind of stuff are these ones drinking/smoking to decide to get behind the wheel after drinking?

    These ones will kill or maim someone here soon and that will simply be the last straw on the camel’s back.

    #6,

    The legal limit in Korea is 0.05. That’s pretty low. In most places in North America, the legal limit is 0.08. I know people who’ve been caught just over the 0.05 limit, not realizing the legal limit was so low here.

    Don’t drive to go to a bar, take a taxi because odds are you’ll be over the limit since it’s so low here.

    If you find yourself in a situation where you can’t leave your car and there aren’t any taxis (bad planning on your part), at the very least give this website a check and plan on waiting a while before getting behind the wheel: http://www.rupissed.com/

    2ID DOC @ #5: I’m just not sure why it’s still permitted to allow DoD to prosecute people for breaking a personal contract. Stay the f out of people’s personal lives, and that sh*t about you giving up certain rights is crap. What do you get in return for giving them up? An armfull of shrapnel, a hook for a hand, and 3rd rate medical care from the VA for life. Wow what a deal.

    There is a service available virtually anywhere in Korea where bars are located called “dae-ri un-jeon” (대리운전). The basic idea is that someone drives you and your car home for you. It’s really quite reasonably priced, typically starting around 10,000 won for short trips and higher prices for longer trips.

    They tend to plaster car windshields in bar areas with flyers advertising the service. A lot of them will do it by sliding a business card in between the driver’s side window and the molding – right up above the car door handle.

    If you can’t speak Korean, just have a Korean make the call for you.

    @10,

    Most service members wouldn’t know to even ask about that, and unless the bar person speaks decent enough English to translate there is a real communications barrier.

    @6,
    That’s 2ID land which is all juicy bars and shit. The base is right near the bars so you can walk the distance if you need to. This leads to my next point.

    Notice how many senior NCO’s are getting DUI’s? They would be allowed to drive regardless of the 2008 policy change, same with the command sponsored or married folks. Only two groups of people live off base, senior NCOs / Officers or married folks, and all of them are authorized to drive.

    So, with these convictions, it’s a good way to support the draw down…It doesn’t state on all of them (serious convictions) if they were discharged….Why keep them in?

    #14. Yeh! One strike your out!
    Many of these soldiers have multiple combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    They need help, not just a fastrack to joblessness, divorce and suicide.

    We need to “Take Care of Our Own!”

    Don’t know the particulars of that case, but convicted on adultry charge, but no prosecutions for sodomy for homosexuals????

    Sodomy is still a crime under UCMJ. So if we are turning a blind eye to enforcing the sodomy article, why are we not for adultry?

    Oh, I am fine with homosexuals, I am not fine with selective enforcement.

    If one group can get their freak on, why can’t everyone???

    @16: Sodomy is not just anal sex between homosexuals. Let’s take this even further. If a guy’s wife or GF gives him a BJ, that is sodomy. Let’s see who write the first Article 15 for that! :-)

    Joint assault?

    Is that when someone from the Army assaults someone from the Navy?
