What relief can the Court of Criminal Appeals or the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces grant?
Courts of Criminal Appeals or the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces can overturn a court-martial conviction in whole or in part. They can dismiss some or all of the charges. They can order a re-hearing, or “re-assess” the sentence of a trial court. An attorney with experience in court-martial appeals can best advise you as to the remedies that might be available to you in a particular case.
