What was he thinking?

The military judge - Lt. Col. Leon Francis - we mean.

In a bizarre end to the court-martial of a female Marine NCO accused of adultery, impeding an investigation, and making false official statements, he gave her a light tap on the wrist and a $1000 reduction in pay for three months.

Oh, yeah. She got a letter of reprimand. Wow.

She could have received up to 12 months in jail, loss of rank, and a bad-conduct discharge.

Instead, the unidentified woman can laugh all the way out the door of the courtroom at Camp Pendleton.

FALSE ACCUSATION OF SEXUAL ASSAULT

Not laughing, is a Marine sergeant who admits he slept with the married woman after the two spent an afternoon of "heavy drinking."

The NCO said he wasn't aware she was married and labeled the sex "consensual."

At first, the woman tried to get in contact with her ex-lover, leaving messages "we gotta get our stories together." That brought her a charge of "impeding an investigation."

False accusations undermine real crimes, which happen most, but not all of the time.

ACCUSED NCO CLEARED BY INVESTIGATORS

When the female Marine's angry hubby, a USMC warrant officer, complained to NCIS about his wife's alleged "adultery," it ended up as a special court-martial.

Not only prosecutors were frustrated with the hair-brained military judge, so were women Marines at Pendleton, upset the unfaithful spouse tried to portray herself as a "victim," saying she was "too drunk to consent" and her partner had "sexually assaulted" her.

An investigation cleared the non-com. If she'd got away with that lie, he could have gone to prison for a very long time.

PROSECUTORS STUNNED BY LIGHT SENTENCE

"By whatever means necessary, she was going to save her skin. When backed into a corner, she played the ultimate trump card by claiming sexual assault," Maj. Doug Hatch said in his closing remarks.

"This case isn't about sexual assault, it's about obstruction of justice and a lack of integrity by a staff NCO," the prosecutor declared.

Once again, we see how Navy LCDR Syneeda Penland (see related stories box below) got screwed, both literally and figuratively, when she was convicted of "adultery."

PENLAND RETALIATED AGAINST

The Navy tossed the "Mustang" officer in the brig and threw her out of the service just weeks short of qualifying for a 20-year retirement.

Penland, a genuine whistle blower and one who doesn't suffer fools gladly, aroused the ire of Navy brass, who made sure she was severely punished.

As for the female Marine at Pendleton, she ought to take leave and go to Vegas, cuz she's got one lucky streak going.
