5924.582 Forfeiture of pay and allowances.

(A) A member who receives a court-martial sentence that includes confinement for more than six months or confinement for six months or less and a dishonorable or bad-conduct discharge or dismissal forfeits pay, or pay and allowances, during any period of confinement or parole. The forfeiture takes effect on the date determined under section 5924.57 of the Revised Code and may be deferred as provided by that section. The pay and allowances forfeited as a result of a sentence imposed by a general court-martial shall be all pay and allowances due during any period of confinement or parole. The pay and allowances forfeited as a result of a sentence imposed by a special court-martial shall be two-thirds of all pay and allowances due during any period of confinement or parole.

(B) If a member subject to forfeiture of pay or pay and allowances under division (A) of this section has dependents, the convening authority or other person acting under section 5924.60 of the Revised Code may waive all or part of the forfeiture of pay and allowances for a period not exceeding six months. Any pay or allowances paid as a result of a waiver shall be paid, as the convening authority or other person taking action directs, to the dependents of the accused member.

(C) If the sentence of a member who forfeits pay and allowances under division (A) of this section is set aside or disapproved or, as finally approved, does not provide for a punishment that includes confinement for more than six months or confinement for six months or less and a dishonorable or bad-conduct discharge or dismissal, the member shall be paid the pay and allowances that the member would have been paid for the period the forfeiture was in effect had the member's pay and allowances not been forfeited.
