Section 5924.10 | Confinement.


(A) Any person subject to this code charged with an offense under this code shall be ordered into arrest or confinement, as circumstances may require; but when charged only with an offense normally tried by a summary court-martial, such person shall not ordinarily be placed into confinement. When any person subject to this code is placed into arrest or confinement prior to trial, the person shall be informed within seventy-two hours of the specific wrong of which the person is accused and of the person's rights under this code.

(B) Confinement, whether before, during, or after trial by a military court, shall be, to the maximum extent practicable, in civil jails or like facilities. An order that an accused person be placed in pretrial confinement shall be reviewed by a military judge within seven days and if confirmed may be reviewed after that confirmation only on motion.
