Hello! Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney ready to answer your questions with top-quality service.
I’m sorry to hear you are having these problems with your legal issue. I know that can be frustrating. However, we can get this resolved quickly.
You want to know if you can get a dishonorable discharge as a result of this?
Got it! I believe I have everything I need, but was there anything else you’d like to add before I answered? If not, I can begin working on your answer.
I’m sorry to hear about your issues here, hopefully, we can get them solved quickly.
Failed drug tests come with different complications. The usual outcome is a dishonorable discharge but there have been cases that lead to other forms of discipline.
Drug use is often labeled as “serious misconduct.” This can lead to military discharge, including a Bad Conduct or in extreme cases a dishonorable discharge. In addition, being discharged for a drug offense renders you ineligible for reenlistment in any branch of the Armed Forces.
Hiring an attorney is the best way to secure an aggressive, well-prepared defense against any drug charges you may be facing. The two most successful angles include:
So you should hire a lawyer and not just accept the NJP (or court-martial without a lawyer). But yes, if you are found guilty then dishonorable discharge is the result since it is a bad conduct discharge from the military. Dishonorable has nothing to do with what kind of person you are but the conduct that led to the discharge.
Please let me know if this has answered your question fully. I hope this information is helpful to you. If you need additional assistance or have follow-up questions, please reply to my message below, and I will respond as soon as I can.
It may be possible to upgrade your discharge later on but that is a different topic once you deal with the actual issue here. That is a totally different process once you leave the military to upgrade a discharge. I have not heard of automatically upgraded, no.
Do you have any other questions on this specific question and topic for me right now?? Please do let me know.
Yes you can, you should get an appointment withJADG/trial defense services ASAP.
