KFMB San Diego, Californi -- Alleged Hamdania Ringleader In Court
A military judge will decide whether or not Sgt. Hutchins will be court-martialed.
JAG Hunter here: No. This report is wrong!
Military judges do no decide whether cases are advanced to courts-martial.
The task of an Article 32 hearing officer is to make a recommendation to the convening authourity. The convening authority, in this case "mad dog" Marine Lieutenant General (3-star) Mattis, acting on behalf of our chief executive (the commander in chief), will decide if a court-martial will be opened (convened).
Here endth the lesson.
