San Diego DUI defense attorney news
A U.S, Military Academy cadet was found guilty of drunk driving by a military judge and sentenced to dismissal from the U.S. Army yesterday.
The verdict came less than three weeks before the man was due to graduate with the class of 2008.
The man was formally charged in December with violating two articles of the Uniform Code of Military Justice: drunken and reckless operation of a vehicle, and conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman.
The cadet allegedly fled the scene and giving a false official statement after being involved in a drunken driving accident while on temporary duty in Maryland last July.
The judge sentenced the gentleman to one year and one month confinement, dismissal from the Army and foreiture of all pay and allowances.
