Unlawfully Influencing Action of Court
arrest and of the limits of the arrest. The order of arrest may be oral or written. A person to be confined is placed under guard and taken to the place  of  confinement. Art. 12. Confinement With Enemy Prisoners Prohibited No  member  of  the  armed  forces  may be  placed  in  confinement  in  immediate association with enemy prisoners or other foreign  nationals  not  members  of  the armed  forces. Art. 13. Punishment Prohibited Before Trial Subject  to  .  .  .  Article  57,  no  person, while  being  held  for  trial  or  the  result  of trial,  may  be  subjected  to  punishment  or penalty  other  than  arrest  or  confinement upon  the  charges  pending  against  him,  nor shall  the  arrest  or  confinement  imposed upon  him  be  any  more  rigorous  than  the circumstances   require   to   ensure   his presence, but he maybe subjected to minor punishment   during   that   period   for   in- fractions  of  discipline. The  minor  punishment  permitted  under  article 13   includes   that   authorized   for   violations   of discipline  set  forth  by  the  place  in  which  the person  is  confined.  The  article  does  not  prevent a  person  from  being  required  to  do  ordinary  clean- ing  or  policing  or  from  taking  part  in  routine training and duties not involving the bearing of arms. Art. 14. Delivery of Offenders to Civil Author- ities (a)  Under  such  regulations  as  the Secretary   concerned   may   prescribe,   a member of the armed forces accused of an offense   against   civil   authority   may   be delivered,  upon  request,  to  the  civil authority  for  trial. (b) When delivery under this article is made  to  any  civil  authority  of  a  person undergoing  sentence  of  a  court-martial,  the delivery, if followed by conviction in a civil tribunal,  interrupts  the  execution  of  the sentence   of   the   court-martial,   and   the offender after having answered to the civil authorities for this offense shall, upon the request  of  competent  military  authority,  be returned  to  military  custody  for  the completion  of  his  sentence. Art.  15.  Commanding  Officer’s  Nonjudicial Punishment Article 15 explains commanding officer’s non- judicial   punishment.   For   some   offenses,   com- manders  may  offer  an  article  15  instead  of court-martial.  If  accepted,  the  commander  may impose  punishment  as  permitted  by  regulations (usually  at  captain’s  mast).  Receiving  an  article 15  is  not  a  conviction,  and  it  does  not  give  a person  a  criminal  record.  This  article  will  be explained  in  greater  detail  later  in  this  chapter under  “Nonjudicial  Punishment.” Art. 25. Who May Serve on Courts-Martial Any commissioned officer, including commis- sioned  warrant  officers,  on  active  duty  with  the armed forces is eligible to serve on a court-martial. Any warrant officer on active duty with the armed forces is eligible to serve on a general court-martial (GCM) and special court-martial (SPCM) for the trial  of  any  person,  other  than  a  commissioned officer.  Any  enlisted  person  on  active  duty  with the armed forces who is not a member of the same unit as the accused is eligible to serve on general and special courts-martial for the trial of enlisted persons. However, enlisted personnel may serve as a member of a court-martial only if, before the assembling  of  such  court,  the  accused  has  per- sonally requested in writing that enlisted personnel serve  as  members  of  the  court. Art. 27. Detail of Trial Counsel and Defense Counsel Each general and special court-martial must have a trial counsel and a defense counsel, with such assistants as the convening authority deems necessary.  The  terms  “counsel,”  “trial  counsel,” and  “defense  counsel”  should  be  interpreted  to 6-9
