  • Article 120 - Full Set Aside of a Conviction
    18 June 2018 Mr. Pristera obtained a full set aside of a conviction for sexual assault for an army warrant officer. Numerous errors with the record of trial and transcript lead the Army Court of Criminal Appeals to conclude that they cannot conduct the required review under article 66. The case started with a mistrial. The government only produced a summarized transcript with the mistrial record of trial and did not attach the mistrial record to the subsequent trial record. The Court first ordered the Government on remand to attach the mistrial record of trial and recomplete post-trial The government complied but again failed to produce a verbatim transcript of the mistrial. Upon subsequent appeal, Mr. Pristera successfully argued that the transcript was not verbatim as required by the rules. Accordingly, the conviction and sentence were set aside. R.C.M. 1103(f) authorizes a rehearing or approval of the sentence with a maximum sentence being that of a special court-martial. No punitive discharge may be approved. This extraordinary result will ultimately require the Army to pay back pay to the member from the date of his conviction.
