Depending upon the length of the court-martial sentence, the military member can either appeal to the Judge Advocate General (TJAG) of his/her service branch or the military branch appellate court. The following appellate courts review military courts-martial:
These appellate courts review the court-martial for legal error, factual sufficiency, and appropriateness of sentence. The following post-trial rules govern the court-martial appeal process:
Although a military member may have been convicted and sentenced in a court-martial trial, and the conviction and sentence may have been approved by the court-martial Convening Authority in the post-trial clemency process, there are still opportunities for relief and/or appeal. A court-martial conviction and sentence can have devastating legal, professional, personal and family consequences. Experienced and aggressive defense representation is crucial in the post-trial appeal phase of a military court-martial trial.
