Possibly, yes. It depends on the crime and level of court-martial. The military, unlike civilian courts, does not label offenses as “felonies” or “misdemeanors.” However, federal and most state laws define a “felony” as “any crime punishable by imprisonment in excess of one year or death.” Therefore, most General court-martial convictions would be considered felonies.
Felony level offenses in the military include:
- Rape and Sex Crimes
- Larceny of Government Property
- Child Pornography
- Identity Theft
- Aggravated Assault
- BAH Fraud, and many others
