UA after completing all training, did not report to fleet. Have been gone almost 30 days. Can not handle the stress, depression and anxiety started suffering from panic attacks. Trouble breathing headaches vomiting
Sorry, as long as there is a United States, you will be on the roles as UA. This means you will eventually be picked up and held, probably at the airport or by local cops for a tail light stop. You will have to deal with this, sooner or later. Get it over with now. They can court martial you. They most likely will not. You will most likely return and be given non judicial punishment followed by an administrative separation. The longer you wait, the worse it will be. However, worst case is Articles 85 & 86 UCMJ for AWOL and desertion. These have max punishments of 3 years for desertion and 18 months for AWOL; less for both if the absence ends by other than apprehension. Again, not likely, but you need to hear it. Be smart.See question
My soldier has a perfect career until his incedent. From the incedent he was given a GOMAR that is still coming down the chain. The civilian court has dropped everything. He is back with his wife who is also military and both are going to counc...
Yes, he is in a tight spot. AR 635-200 (Chapter 14-12) only cares about the underlying conduct, not whether or not the state court actually convicts him or not. I recently resolved one just like this at Fort Benning. In that case, the Soldier and his fiancé reconciled. So, I had her sign an affidavit saying that she had exaggerated to the police. The state dismissed the matter through a diversion and counseling arrangement. I liaised with the command to ensure a local GOMOR. That prevents any later repercussions with the Human Resource Command. He got back into the fold, and he is now doing just fine.
In this case, if the GOMOR cannot be pulled or kept local, then that is spilt milk. The thing is you are going to want to keep the command from administratively separating him. If they go that route, he may or may not qualify for a board hearing. If he does, then he needs to hire a lawyer and defend it with all him ability, albeit smartly. A good, persuasive lawyer will make all the difference.See question
My brother just recently went to training for the Navy. First he had hurt his leg but he did not tell us what actually happened, and the second incident was a few days after his leg had got better and he went back to training and he had to jump in...
No Sir, he cannot sue the Navy for this. There were a series if cases that arose in the early 1950's and became consolidated into United States vs. Feres. The United States Supreme Court heard these cases and its decision is now colloquially referred to as the "Feres Doctrine". It stands for the idea that one cannot sue the military in court. The primary reasons are that this would undermine the military's unique status as a warfighting organization with customs and practices completely foreign to the rest of society and the government. But there is more, Feres also stands for its reasoning that the military has within it the internal redress mechanisms to address all wrongs committed by the military upon its members. I have criticized this theory from time to time, but it stands nonetheless.
In your case, the Navy could investigate the wrongdoing and fire, censure or even court martial the offenders. It sounds callous to say it, but if he was severely injured, another redress mechanism comes in the form of military disability retired pay, Veterans Administration disability benefits and certainly his free Tricare medical coverage.
Finally, Feres stands for the proposition that it undermines the military, its chain of command and its warfighting mandate if its members could run into court and sue it at the drop of a hat. In other words, in the total balance, our society benefits from having a military that is not diverting its attention constantly to defend lawsuits. The balance is that the military has plenary authority and ability to smack its people when they abuse its members and there are a plethora of redress mechanisms internal to the military.
Tell your brother to file a complaint with the Inspector General.See question
I doctored a transcript to get into grad school at Philadelphia University. I have a BA from Almeda University from 2002. I didn't know at the time their accrediting agency was not recognized by the Dept of Ed. So, no grad schools will accept it. ...
Yes, you could very well face criminal charges for this. You also probably will not get in this university. You need to stop making admissions on an open Internet for him right now. You need to contact a local attorney and discuss this face-to-face and confidentiality. Many of us on this service provide consults, free consults and can meet during the week to discuss these matters with you. Look for the directory and select one right awaySee question
a girl is at a friends house who has warrants out for her arrest if she were to be found at his house since he is on parole what kind of trouble will he get in
SHE will get arrested.
HE can be arrested by probation or be noticed and brought before the Court on a petition alleging a violation of probation for the typical general provision not to hang around with people of low/poor character. As a typical general condition, the court can - at a maximum - revoke up to two years of a probated sentence. Typically, it is a tongue lashing and maybe a shot bit of time. However, don't assume it is that light, the facts and circumstances and the judge can vary it a lot.

Yes, I agree with all that have responded. The new era is bringing this out more and more. It is so common for the local police to totally blow off spurious charges and CID (who I like to call "Specialists with Badges and Cheap Suits") is off and running. Hire a lawyer right away. Even if CID just investigates it and "merely" titles you for probable cause (and the chain of command does nothing more) this can have lasting effects on you for the rest of your life.See question

The only thing I will add is this. While in the MEB process you are not insulated from the effects of bad conduct. If you feel that all is futile and start showing up late, not showing up, mouthing off, etc. the chain of command is not prohibited from counseling you, administering non judicial punishment or even an administrative separation or a court martial even. You need to tow the line as well as manage your MEB.See question

You should hire a lawyer. The open container in the car does not help your case, and you know that. BUT if you were not drinking, and they have no other evidence of alcohol use, THEN you may have a viable defense. You need to hire counsel quickly.See question

This questions is best directed to the appropriate section of the Army Human Resource Command at Fort Knox, Kentucky. That place is enormous, but somewhere inside the building is the office that manages your career field. You need to reach out to them. In this case, I would reach out to them directly and ask your questions.See question
