ABSTRACT

Federal Offenders Who Served in the Armed Forces   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Introduction: "This report provides an analysis of the relatively small number of veterans each year who are sentenced for a federal felony or Class A misdemeanor offense, most often committed well after they left military service. In particular, the report examines federal offenders with prior military service who were sentenced in fiscal year 2019, the crimes they committed, and an assessment of whether that prior service was given special consideration at sentencing. Since most veteran offenders are sentenced for offenses other than federal felony or Class A misdemeanor offenses and, therefore, not reflected in the Commission's data, the report also discusses how many states, and even a few federal districts have established specialized courts for less serious offenses to provide veterans with additional opportunities for rehabilitation and reentry into the community."
