Military Law Review

Excerpt: No person subject to this chapter [Code] may interrogate, or request any statement from, an accused or a person suspected of an offense without first informing him of the nature of the accusation and advising him that he does not have to make any statement regarding the offense of which he is accused or suspected and that any statement made by him may be used as evidence against him in a trial by court-martial.? Article 31 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice throws a triangle of protection around accused persons. Subsection (a) incorporates the privilege against compulsory self-incrimination; subsection (d) proscribes the admission in evidence of involuntary confessions and admissions. However, subsection (b) provides an entirely distinct and more sophisticated protection. Concepts of compulsion, coercion, and unlawful influence or inducement and their effect upon the will of a subject are not in point. The sole relevant question is: As a matter of fact, was the subject given a proper and timely warning advising him of his Article 31 rights? It is the failure to recognize this apparently obvious proposition that has caused much unnecessary confusion in this area.
