Criminal Law Division

The Criminal Law Division provides legal advice to commanders at the U.S. Army Cadet Command and at units in its AR 5-9 support area regarding military justice, disciplinary, and adverse administrative matters. This includes government representation for special, special-BCD, and general courts-martial, administrative elimination actions, and for representation at U.S. Federal District Court for felony, misdemeanor, and traffic offenses committed at Fort Knox. The Division provides instruction to all units on Fort Knox for military justice matters, in addition to providing certified instructors to the Armor School for instruction on military justice and laws of land warfare. Each basic training company receives its mandatory training on military justice, the DOD policy on homosexual conduct, and the new fraternization policy from a member of this Division. It further provides instruction to units, as requested, on topics including, but not limited to, the Law of Ware, Trainee Abuse, and the Legal Aspects of the Army Urinalysis Program.

The Division is also designated and responsible for the Victim Witness Assistance Program (VWAP) for USAARMC and Fort Knox, HQ, USAREC, and other commands under this general court-martial convening authority's jurisdiction. The Victim Witness Liaison Officer serves as facilitator and coordinator for the VWAP and primary point of contact through which victims and witnesses obtain information and assistance in securing available services.
