No Charges after Positive Urinalysis

I represented an Army Staff Sergeant at Fort Bragg who "popped hot" for codeine. The command was prepared to give him an Article 15, and then discharge him from the Army. I was able to convince the command that the use was accidental, as his wife had given him a Tylenol with Codeine for a headache, when he thought it was just Tylenol. We had a sworn statement from the wife, and photos of the Tylenol with codeine as compared to regular Tylenol. Based on this, the command has dropped all proceedings, and the soldier will be allowed to continue his career.
