Portsmouth forms a team of prosecutors to combat drugs (The Virginian-Pilot - HamptonRoads.com/PilotOnline.com):
"Of the 21 sentences through last week, the average active time to serve has been just more than six years, Commonwealth's Attorney Earle Mobley said."
JAG Hunter here: So let's see if we understand this arrangement clearly.
Military policemen--federal agents at that--acting with and assisting local civilian police in civilian community law enforcement. Said another way, federal military cops (the "beyond boundaries" Naval Criminal Investigatve Sevice) participating in arresting and prosecuting civilians (not in the military, not under military jurisdiction) who are subsequently prosecuted in state courts by non-federal, civilian state prosecutors.
See any problems?
