Oooops

In today’s CAAF Journal we see:

No. 16-0615/AF. U.S. v. Zavian M.T. Addison. CCA S32287. On consideration of the petition for grant of review of the decision of the United States Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals, it is ordered that said petition is hereby granted on the following issue:

WHETHER APPELLANT IS ENTITLED TO NEW POST-TRIAL PROCESSING BECAUSE THE ADDENDUM TO THE STAFF JUDGE ADVOCATE’S RECOMMENDATION FAILED TO CORRECT AN ERROR IN APPELLANT’S CLEMENCY SUBMISSION.

The decision of the United States Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals and the action of the Convening Authority are set aside. The record is returned to the Judge Advocate General of the Air Force for remand to an appropriate convening authority for a new Staff Judge Advocate’s Recommendation and Convening Authority’s action. Appellant will be represented by a new and conflict-free trial defense counsel.

The AFCCA decision below tells us what appears to have happened.
