Hearing  Officer
If  the  accused  is  represented  by  a  military or  civilian  lawyer  as  a  personal  representative at  his  or  her  captain’s  mast,  the  following example  should  be  made  on  a  page  13: (Grade   and   name   of   accused)   received punishment   at   captain’s   mast   on   date.  The accused  was  represented  by  a  lawyer. If  the  member  refuses  to  sign  the  forms, simply  record  that  you  advised  the  member  of his or her rights but he or she declined to sign the  forms. Note  that  the  member  must demand  trial  by  court-martial  and  if  he  or  she fails  to  make  such  a  demand,  the  command may  proceed  with  NJP.  Once  all  prehearing advice  is  given,  the  accused  is  ready  for  the XOs   screening. EXECUTIVE   OFFICER’S   SCREENING The  XO  may  screen  a  case  by  holding  an informal   hearing   or   may   merely   review   the record  of  the  accused  and  the  report  chit.  If the  XO  has  been  given  the  power  by  the  CO, he or she may dismiss the case, but may never impose   punishment. At  the  XO’s  screening  mast  the  accused  is advised  again  of  the  right  to  refuse  NJP  and demand  a  trial  by  court-martial.  At  this  point section  G  of  NAVPERS  1626/7  can  be  signed by  the  accused  if  it  was  not  signed  before.  Be sure   to   get   the   witness’   signature   in   this section  also. Remember  that  Article  15,  UCMJ,  does  not give   the   right   to   refuse   NJP   to   persons attached   to   vessels.   Also   remember   that   an accused  not  attached  to  or  embarked  in  a vessel  may  elect  at  any  time  before  imposition of     NJP     to     refuse     it     and     demand     a court-martial. It   is,   then,   possible   for   an accused   to   elect   not   to   demand   trial   by court-martial  at  the  XO’s  screening  but  later at  captain’s  mast  demand  it  provided  it  is before  any  punishment  is  imposed. Once  the  XO  has  conducted  an  inquiry,  he or  she  has  the  option  of  referring  the  case  to mast  or  dismissing  it.  The  XO  fills  in  section F,  noting  the  action  he  or  she  has  taken.  If the  case  is  referred  to  the  CO  for  mast,  a formal  hearing  is  set  up. THE   HEARING   PROCEDURE Captain’s  mast  is  held  at  the  time  and place  decided  on  by  the  CO.  The  XO,  legal officer,   or   discipline   officer   normally   assists the   CO.   Additionally,   a   master-at-arms   will be  present  to  keep  order  and  call  the  accused to  mast.  Your  function  will  be  to  have  the service  record  of  the  accused  and  other associated  documents  available  for  the  CO. While   local   practices   will   come   into   play as    far    as    setting    up    the    mast    and    the formalities  required,  appendix  A-1-e  of  the JAGMAN  is  the  official  guide  for  the  NJP proceedings. HEARING   REQUIREMENTS Except   as noted   in   the   following paragraph,  NJP  cases  must  be  handled  at  a hearing  whereby  the  accused  is  allowed  to exercise  the  foregoing  rights. In   addition, there  are  other  technical  requirements  about the  hearing  and  the  exercise  of  the  accused’s rights. Personal  Appearance  Waived Part   V,   par.   4c(2),   MCM,   1984,   provides that  if  the  accused  waives  his  or  her  right  to appear  personally  before  the  CO,  he  or  she may  submit  written  matters  for  consideration by   the   CO   before   the   imposition   of   NJP.   If the   accused   makes   this   election,   inform   the accused  of  his  or  her  right  to  remain  silent and  that  any  matters  submitted  may  be  used against  him  or  her  at  a  trial  by  court-martial. Notwithstanding  the  accused’s  expressed desire  to  waive  his  or  her  right  to  appear personally  at  the  NJP  hearing,  he  or  she  may 9-9
