Insubordination: Legal Definition

Insubordination is a broad military offense. Under Article 91 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), an officer or enlisted personnel can be charged with insubordination if he or she:

  • Assaults, hits, or punches an officer, noncommissioned officer (NCO), or petty officer while they are performing his official duties;
  • Intentionally disobeys a legal order from an officer; or
  • Disrespects an officer verbally or physically while they are performing their official duties

In order to be convicted of insubordination, a defendant must have known that the person he or she struck, assaulted, willfully disobeyed or treated with contempt was a warrant, noncommissioned or petty officer. An experienced insubordination defense lawyer knows that these charges have many defenses.
