Fort Drum to Prosecute NY DWI Cases in Military Court

Major General Michael Oates, commander of Fort Drum in northern New York, has decided to prosecute soldiers arrested for drunk driving in military, rather than civilian, court. The Army post has been publishing photos of soldiers accused of NY DWI for several months, though Oates said that effort has not deterred drunk driving enough.

Soldiers arrested for driving while intoxicated in New York will now be subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Punishment can range from a reprimand to a full court martial. Oates also hopes to conclude the DWI cases more rapidly, stating that prosecution in civilian court can take too much time.
