What Punishment Can I Expect for Lying to an NCO?

The Mentor - A Comprehensive Guide to Army Counseling and Leadership

Lying is a serious offense and breach of values.  Depending on the circumstances you could be looking at full punishment under the UCMJ.

If it is a Summary Article 15- 14 days restriction, 14 extra duty.

If you are getting a company grade Article 15 it would be loss of 1 grade, loss of 7 days pay, 14 days restriction, 14 extra duty.

I believe most leaders see lying as a serious issue, they usually will not go easy in these cases.  I would highly encourage you to be well prepared and be able to explain yourself and actions.
