As Hoops noted, you can see some interesting stuff happen in military misconduct. Unlike the civilian world, the chain of command has a front row seat, whether for military or civilian cases.
For the lurkers here without a military background, junior officers are assigned collateral duties in addition to their primary duty, such as Legal Officer, at commands not big enough to have its own JAG. Sometimes Legal Officer can be full-time. To this fortunate soul falls the duty of following up misconduct cases, coordinating with the installation JAGs at Legal Services or the court-martial convening authority in the chain of command, or discussing and preparing cases for Non-Judicial Punishment (NJP, Captain's Mast, Office Hours, UCMJ Article 15 proceedings, by various names) and other administrative matters. I did my time as a Legal Officer... had my eyes opened as to the span of Stuff Humans Feel Compelled To Do. Or Say. Or Not Do. Or Lie About.
I always think I should have written down all the stories from my time as XO of a large Naval Station, with a destroyer squadron, amphibs, the last two working battleships, and multiple large tenant commands. The CO and I, after a visit from our Station JAG, or NCIS, or the Surface Group Commander's JAG, or on special days, the FBI or State/City Police, would shake our heads after being briefed on the incident du jour, as we sat reviewing the day after working hours.
One of the most memorable, and saddest, was the group of junior military wives, who, finding their budgets tight, instead of working at the NEX or Commissary or being entrepreneurial with Tupperware or Mary Kay, chose to make home porn videos and sell them. Husbands were all deployed. This was just before the internet's widespread use, where there were lots of corner video stores with an over-18 back room. Suffice it to say, the Navy being a small world sometimes, they were recognized. What a stinking pile. Heck of a homecoming for the sailors, to find their wives arrested and charged, kids in CPS custody, facing eviction from base housing (scene of the crime), and shattered marriages.
One of the funny-sad results of DOD finally getting the DEERS (Defense Eligibility Enrollment System), source of all ID cards, fully digitized in a universal database with internal fraud controls and integration with TRICARE medical, and personnel records, was the number of sailors identified who had wives and kids in San Diego, Norfolk and the Philippines, all with ID cards, all using medical and dental benefits, all using the Commissary and Exchange. Oh my. I can't recall how many shame-faced and slightly terrified sailors I faced across my desk. The good thing is the kids all received benefits, as acknowledged dependents, and the dust eventually settled.
Nothing about the original story surprises me. Humans...
