    ...or perhaps they're fully aware that 90% of all Court Martials end in a conviction, and aren't willing to roll that dice.

    There is a reason for that too...most CC's aren't willing to send something to CM unless they are pretty sure the accused actually did it... Sometimes, if the accused turns down the NJP, the CC will leave it alone because there just isn't enough to PROVE it at CM... Not sure how often it happens but it does happen. Just like civilians will often try to get you to plead to a lower offense rather than go to trial...

    Or the prosecution's lawyer messed up and didn't push as good as he should have, letting the defendant's lawyer wow the jury so they went with him..
