Before you start on her, she has been "pointed in this direction" from the cleverheads on RP, who I have already berated.

Nice comments please.

I think the lack of response is due mainly to the lack of detail, in some cases the civilian courts would hand over a soldier to his unit for military discipline but this is way out of my depth.

some more detail about the seriousness of the crime may help prompt more response

any idea how long for if he was awol 10mnths - i will tell you something though on his release he will wish he was miles away from me ha
Only the judge can decide that.

He should be handed over to the Army. What happens then will depend on a number of factors including, but not limited to:

Under what circumstances he went AWOL
What crime he committed
Whether the Army wants him to continue to soldier
Whether he wants to continue to soldier
His current personal circumstances.

The outcome could be anything from being told to "Clear off!" to serving time in a military jail and being required to complete his term of service.

It's between him and the Army. Nobody on here can make more than a biased guess. Sorry if this isn't more helpful.

All depends on the crime and the judge, if it's a petty offence, public disorder for example, the judge would hand him to the army knowing he'll get worse punishment than they can give him, if it's more serious, murder as an extreme case, he wouldn't see the inside of a camp again as the civil court would take precedence.


edited to add...can you tell we're all dying to know what he did?? :D

ok here goes - his uncle came from hull to visit and is a complete idiot - my partner has gone to the shop with him and bought a packet of crisps - meanwhile his uncle has put on a balaclava and robbed the shop man with a knife - my oh legged it when he realised and seriously (i know you wont believe me) didnt know he was going to do it, it turns out his uncle who he not seen for years has pevious for this and is a raving alcoholic. he is on remand because he has been awol and the judge wouldnt trust him to return to court but after speakng to his solicitor and hearing the shopkeepers statement he will walk because he hasnt done anything.

pls remember it wasnt me that did anything

in that case it's just the AWOL to deal with, not so bad. well, no as bad as AWOL and Robbery anyway!

While I was in I saw AWOL guys get sent to Military nick and then soldier on, or just sent to Military nick and kicked out, or just be discharged with no time in Nick so it could go any way. again it all depends on the situation, was he warned for an operational tour, Afgh or Iraq? was he just back from the sandy place?

like I said earlier, this is out of my depth so I hope someone out there can help you out.

On the proviso CCRIO and his Unit have been informed that your better half has been banged up on remand, there is a good possibilty that once he has been sentenced for his offence, he might be given an admin discharge by the Army. Any sentence awarded to run concurrent with the civilian punishment so basically if he's served 30 days on remand, as far as his unit is concerned 28 days of that was his punishment for AWOL, paper discharge and he's not moved an inch out of his cell.

One of Mrs Baldricks little darlings got the good news last week he was out of the Army six weeks into a two year sentence. He was absent 4 weeks prior to his arrest by CivPol with three months on remand prior to sentencing.

they have apparently said if he not chaged with it they will take him when he is released - so im presuming they will either send him to their prison or kick him out but i shouldnt presume - he will getthe ass kicking of his life when he gets home and he WILL get a job asap even if its cleaning bogs lol
