Invariably, some of these recruits are accused of criminal activity during their time at MCRD and often face extremely serious sanctions. A military member who is convicted of a crime can face extremely serious consequences, some of which could even mean the end of a career. Fortunately, in many cases, a military criminal defense attorney can help.
