CAAF appears to be clearing out some of the trailer-park cases on alleged post-trial "errors."
Summary Dispositions 29 June 2021. There are eight, with a similar disposition to,
No. 20-0358/AR. U.S. v. Carlos Muniz, Jr. CCA 20200092. On further consideration of the granted issue (80 M.J. 401 (C.A.A.F. 2020)), and because the charges were not preferred in this case until after January 1, 2019, we conclude that the convening authority did not err in taking "no action" on the sentence, and the United States Army Court of Criminal Appeals had jurisdiction to review Appellant's case. See United States v. Brubaker-Escobar, 81 M.J. __ (C.A.A.F. June 4, 2021). Accordingly, it is ordered that the judgment of the United States Army Court of Criminal Appeals is affirmed.
