West Point Cadet Jailed For Dealing Drugs at Army
A West Point cadet was dismissed and jailed for dealing drugs around the West Point campus.
On Wednesday, Christopher Monge, a member of Army the Class of 2017, was convicted by a military judge for drug-related crime. Monge was sentenced to 30 months in prison, dismissal from the U.S. Army and forfeiture of all pay and allowances.
In Nov. 2016, Monge was charged with violations of Article 112a, wrongful possession and wrongful distribution of the controlled substances alprazolam and oxycodone, and violations of Article 81 conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
“Cadet Monge’s behavior is inappropriate and inconsistent with the values of the military academy,” Theresa Brinkerh, Chief of Media Relations said. “The facts were presented in a full and open hearing and the issue was resolved in a manner consistent with military law and due process requirements.”
Monge was one of a handful of cadets accused of illegally dealing painkillers and anxiety medicine at West Point. Four other cadets are suspended and waiting further action.
