USKF Court Martial Results for September 2013

Here are the Court Martial and ROK criminal prosecution results for September 2013 that were posted  on the USFK website.  For the month of September there were no court martials posted for some reason, but there was plenty of cases in the ROK legal system.  In September there were five more people convicted for DUI to include a Lieutenant Colonel on Yongsan.  It just amazes me that someone with that much rank and thus that much more to lose would be stupid enough to drive drunk.  DUIs continue to be a problem in USFK.  There were also four soldiers convicted for drug violations which could be linked back to the whole drug mail ring that was broken up this year.  Then the Itaewon Pellet Gun Bandits were also convicted in September with the Staff Sergeant receiving three years in jail and his accomplice and mistress who was an E-4 at the time received an approximately $4,600 fine.  The accomplice is actually the one that fired the first pellet gun shots, but let this be a lesson to everyone that she showed remorse in court and thus was not jailed.  The E-6 instead fought the allegations and was slammed for not showing remorse and thus 3-years in jail.

    What’s worse is the LTC received a 7,000,000 won fine vs. 5,000,000 or less for the others. I suppose he must have been really drunk.

    Interesting that 2 Sgts in Uijeongbu were convicted of hit and run on the same day in the same court. Obviously both of them weren’t driving the same vehicle. Does Korea convict passengers for hit and run as well?

    Two observations:

    1) What’s with the seemingly totally random number fines for the Humphreys Spice Boys? I mean, first you’ve got W60,000 and then W60,000 so maybe it sounds like W60,000 per incident of receiving Spice in the mail or something? (pretty lax fine if you ask me) But then you’ve got W776,300 and W489,340 so after looking at those numbers, I’d say it’s anybody’s guess as to how they compute their fines.

    2) The LTC and the W7,000,000 DUI – for those that don’t know – 411th CSB-K is really CC-K (Contracting Command-Korea) – our old ‘friends’ who are so truthful and honest, especially when awarding contracts ‘impartially’ and dealing with the needs of invited contractors. So, maybe dude didn’t pay his bribes on-time or grease the right palms so the mobbed-up Koreans turned the cops loose on him? We may never know… :lol:

    Leon, they could have been experiencing large-scale quantum entanglement.
