No Misconduct Found After Sailor’s Positive Urinalysis for Cocaine

After a port call in Honduras, two Navy Sailors tested positive for cocaine during the same command-wide urinalysis. They were both found guilty at Captain’s Mast and sent to administrative discharge boards. One Sailor opted to retain our services to represent him at his board and one Sailor opted to be represented by military counsel. The Sailor represented by military counsel was found to have committed the misconduct and was administratively separated from the Navy. The very next day, our client was found to have committed NO MISCONDUCT and was RETAINED at his administrative discharge board. Later, we petitioned the Commanding Officer to SET ASIDE the results of the previous Captain’s Mast and our client was restored to his previously held rank.
