The DUI through civilian court and the GOMOR and flag for the DUI are two separate actions.
My first question would be, why were the charges dismissed?
Second, the flag is required for the DUI in civilian court and the GOMOR from the military side. Since the charges were dropped from the civilian court, you are no longer flagged for that action. However, you are still flagged for the pending GOMOR. This will remain in effect until the issuing commander directs what happens to the GOMOR (filed in OMPF, locally, or destroyed). Once that determination is made, then that flag must be lifted. However, you could still be barred from reenlistment for the DUI even though you were not convicted in civilian court.
If someone is charged with a crime and is found not guilty (not simply having the charges dropped, but found innocent) and a GOMOR for the allegation of the crime has already been filed, can the Not guilty verdict cause the gomor to be removed?
Anon, When you received your GOMAR notice , you should have had 7 days to provide a rebuttal. You can contact your Legal Assistance Office to help you draft the rebuttal. In the rebuttal you can request that the GOMOR be filed locally instead of your OMPF. Once in the OMPF it is almost impossible to have it removed. Our legal SME states he has can’t remember one ever being removed from the OMPF.
Once a GOMOR is issued, the flag should be removed and the Soldier is eligible to reenlist, UNLESS the unit issued a Bar to Reenlistment because of the GOMOR. All of these are administrative action and not considered punishment. You may be able to file an appeal with HRC. Check out AR 600-37 chapter 7 and AR 601-280 (Bars) for more information
I am currently a Sergeant that has been convicted with a Dwi. I’m going to get read my Gomor soon. Is it possible to get a Gomor and a field grade article 15 at the same time. In the Army.
Yes it is possible to get both. The GOMAR is an administrative action and the field grade is punishment.
