(1) Subject to s. 322.017, summary courts-martial have jurisdiction to try persons subject to this code, except officers, cadets, candidates, and midshipmen, for any offense made punishable by this code under limitations as the governor may prescribe.
(2) No person with respect to whom summary courts-martial have jurisdiction may be brought to trial before a summary court-martial if that person objects.
