the charges are official misconduct
It is unlikely that the charges can be dismissed simply because the defendant is a soldier and is being deployed. The problem for the State will be forcing the defendant to come to court. The court will be hard pressed to state that the defendant willfully failed to appear for court since he is in the custody of the United States military and would not be able to disobey his deployment orders. Depending upon what the court decides, there may be a speedy trial issue. But the deployment by itself is insufficient to get charges dismissed completely.
This is not to be considered legal advice nor does an attorney-client relationship exist.
