In another of a series of cases the Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals has decided a personal jurisdiction issue adverse to the accused.
United States v. Blanton, ACM S31536 (A.F. Ct. Crim. App. 9 June 2009).
Basically the issue relates to the “accounting of pay” part of whether an accused is properly discharged. The accused was under investigation but no preferred charges existed. The accused receives his DD214, but no final accounting of pay. An additional aspect was a finding that the accused had been placed on legal hold pending an investigation.
