UCOM is different then standard civilian law

Based on other reports this guy was really outdoing himself to include misuse of a govt credit card. My suspicions are this guy was orginally being investigated by the Inspector General for financial impropriates among other things. Once the IG found out enough to have him removed he was pulled back to the States while the CID (Criminal Investigative Division, think of them as the Army's NCIS) dug up the rest of what was needed for criminal charges of a more serious nature. My dad was in the IG office back in the late 70s-early 80s and it was amazing the stuff that they would find on guys serving overseas (the most common was obviously misapprop funds and adultery which unlike civilan law is a crime under the Uniform Code of Miltary Justice). Its possible they've already had an Article 32 hearing which is why we are finding out, technically until he is charged (which it seems now he is) they can not say one thing publically regarding any investigation or charges until the 32 hearing has been held regarding the results of an investigation and potential charges and whether the government has cause to proceed to a General Court Martial
