‘Crapshoot’ sentencing by court martial juries likely to end, advocates for new legislation say
"Court-martial sentencing by juries may go the way of flogging, a change many military justice experts say is long overdue.
Military judges instead would hand down sentences based on federal guidelines as part of military justice system reforms proposed in the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act. The act isn’t expected to be signed into law until sometime after the new fiscal year starts Friday.
The proposal is supported by the Pentagon and is included in both the House and Senate versions of the legislation."
