Army Memo re: Dismissal of Court-Martial Charges in Preference of a Guilty Plea to an Article 15 re: Abuse of Detainees

Oct. 16, 2003 | DOA | ACLU-RDI 509
This Memo from the Army is dismissing, with prejudice, charges brought in a Court-Martial proceeding in exchange for the soldier pleading guilty to two (2) charges brought in an Article 15 proceeding. The investigation was in regards to allegations that a soldier pointed his weapon at a detainee and said "Bang" or words to that effect, and that he struck a detainee in the face with his hand, and an admission of punching the detainee and stomping his feet.
