Summary courts martial are used to try enlisted members for noncapital offenses and your proceeding will be watched over by a commissioned officer. If you are found guilty against a reasonable doubt in this proceeding, the penalties that you may be facing will depend on the grade that you hold at the time of arrest. At any level, however, you may be subjected to confinement, reduced pay grade, forfeiture of pay and discharge. Members holding an E-4 can be reduced as drastically as an E-1, setting you back years in your advancement. A main reason that a commanding officer may wish to hold a court martial for you is because they could potentially punish you with up to 30 days in confinement, as opposed to a non-judicial punishment.
