§15-1E-57. Effective date of sentences.
(a) Whenever a sentence of a court-martial as lawfully
adjudged and approved includes a forfeiture of pay or allowances in
addition to confinement not suspended, the forfeiture may apply to
pay or allowances becoming due on or after the date the sentence is
approved by the convening authority. No forfeiture may extend to
any pay or allowances accrued before that date.
(b) Any period of confinement included in a sentence of a
court-martial begins to run from the date the sentence is adjudged
by the court-martial, but periods during which the sentence to
confinement is suspended or deferred shall be excluded in computing
the service of the term of confinement.
(c) All other sentences of courts-martial are effective on the
date ordered executed.
