Military Justice

For those who are concerned whether the Military Courts can properly police their own:

RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany - An Airman here was convicted of sodomy and sentenced to a dishonorable discharge, 19 years confinement, reduction to Airman Basic and forfeiture of all pay and allowances by a general court-martial March 29.Master Sgt. Bart Lipscomb, from the 86th Maintenance Squadron, was convicted of one charge of sodomy with a female younger than 12 between January 2000 and March 2004, and one charge of sodomy with a female between 12 and 16 from March to July 2004. -- Military.com

Makes me wonder what kind of sentence he would have gotten as a civilian...
