Can You Receive a Court-Martial for Adultery?

It’s very rare to see in the military a court-martial only for the offense of adultery. Generally speaking, if the allegation is only that the member has committed adultery, that’s going to be dealt with with non-judicial punishment or Article 15, captain’s mast.

If on the other hand there is an allegation of sexual assault, if the member is married, or if the person with whom the sexual contact was made is a married person, sometimes prosecutors will make the tactical decision to go ahead and add an offense as part of another allegation of sexual assault. But generally speaking you will not only see a court martial for adultery.
