I was wondering how the process works in regards to my unit charging me. I am a sergeant in the Marine Corps and am most likely facing drug (steroid) possession / usage and possibly distribution if they want to go that far. I have contacted multiple attorneys concerning this matter, and they've all told me I'm pretty much screwed because I talked with them too late. Now I'm just trying to avoid getting a court martial, especially a general court martial since it's basically a felony. A lot of the attorneys said they see it not going to court martial, but it could. When will I know to call my attorney? When my command tells me that they're taking it to court martial? I have a feeling that when they tell me that, I'm going to be locked up and not have a means of contacting my attorney.
