Special courts-martial have jurisdiction to try persons subject to this code for any
offense made punishable by this code. Special courts-martial may, under such limitations as the governor may prescribe,
adjudge any punishment not forbidden by the code, except dishonorable discharge, dismissal,
confinement for more than three months or forfeiture of pay for more than three months.
A bad-conduct discharge may not be adjudged unless a complete record of the proceedings
and verbatim testimony has been made, counsel pursuant to K.S.A. 48-2505 and amendments thereto was detailed to represent the accused and a military judge
was detailed to the trial, except in cases in which a military judge was not detailed,
the convening authority shall make a detailed written statement, to be appended to
the record, stating the reasons a military judge could not be detailed.
