5924.72 Vacation of suspension of sentence.

(A) An officer having special court-martial jurisdiction over a person whose sentence has been suspended may recommend vacation of the suspension of an approved sentence or part of a sentence that was imposed by a special court-martial and includes a bad-conduct discharge or that was imposed by a general court-martial.

(B) Before vacating the suspension of a sentence or part of a sentence under division (A) of this section, an officer having special court-martial jurisdiction over a person whose sentence has been suspended shall hold a hearing on the alleged violation of the terms of suspension. The person has the right to be represented at the hearing by counsel .

(C) The record of the hearing and the recommendation of the officer having special court-martial jurisdiction shall be sent for action to the officer exercising general court-martial jurisdiction over the person whose sentence has been suspended. If that officer vacates the suspension, any unexecuted part of the sentence except a dismissal shall be executed, subject to applicable restrictions set forth in section 5924.71 of the Revised Code. A vacation of the suspension of a dismissal is not effective until it is approved by the adjutant general.

(D) The suspension of any other sentence may be vacated by any authority competent to convene, for the command in which the accused is serving or assigned, a court of the kind that imposed the sentence.
