(1) Whenever a sentence of a court-martial as lawfully adjudged and approved includes a forfeiture of pay or allowances, the forfeiture may apply to pay or allowances becoming due on or after the date the sentence is approved by the convening authority. No forfeiture may extend to any pay or allowances accrued before that date.
(2) Any period of confinement included in a sentence of a court-martial begins to run from the date the sentence is ordered to be executed by the convening authority but periods during which the sentence to confinement is suspended or deferred shall be excluded in computing the service of the term of confinement. Regulations prescribed by the Governor may provide that sentences of confinement may not be executed until approved by designated officers.
(3) All other sentences of courts-martial are effective on the date ordered executed. [1961 c.454 §136; 1985 c.682 §39]Section: Previous 398.230 398.232 398.234 398.236 398.238 398.252 398.254 398.256 398.258 398.260 398.272 398.274 398.276 398.278 398.280 Next
