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.

You can read the rest of the ROK criminal prosecution results below:

    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:

    If 2 non-DUI drivers hit each other, check the damages, exchange info and drive away, it is not hit and run. But if 2 drunks hit each other check the damages, exchange info and drive away, it is hit and run(away from the cops) lol

    The only place for Spanish in the American military is when they hear “I am dying!” as they mow down invading cackroaches at the border with the .50 cal.

    The only place for it in civilian America is asking if your lawn needs cut just before they take their gaggle of ratty children back across the border to where they belong.

    German, Irish, Italian, Scandinavian, Swiss, etc., immigrants learned English… and, while Mexicans aren’t that smart (as demonstrated by Mexico)… they can make an effort… as America does not want to be anything like Mexico and everything south of it.

    Skeen’s profile is that of a typically corrupt contracting officer who cried PTSD and started malingering as soon as it looked like he would get caught… and he seems to have had a spicy senorita on the side that (presumably) his dull British wife was unaware of.

    It’s like a bad telenovella playing out before our eyes. Has anyone found any information on his death? I am curious now about his story.

    Johnnyboy, I don’t think he is dead.

    His career might be… but not him.

    …but there are several fishy things going on here… as in things are not adding up in the way they usually add up.
