Two airmen assigned to Ramstein Air Base, Germany, were handed jail sentences during separate trials last week in military court at Ramstein.

Airman Jeffery Jolliff, 23, of the 435th Security Forces Squadron, pleaded guilty to marijuana use, marijuana possession, psilocybin mushrooms possession and oxycodone use. The offenses occurred last year, on June 1 and Sept. 1, somewhere in Germany, according to officials with the 435th Air Base Wing Military Justice Division.

In a special court-martial Friday, Jolliff was reduced in rank to E-1, handed a bad-conduct discharge and sentenced to three months of confinement.

Earlier in the week, in another special court-martial, Staff Sgt. Charles Truett, 29, of the 435th Civil Engineer Squadron, pleaded guilty to one count each of drunken driving and reckless driving.

According to military justice officials, Truett, in the early morning hours of Jan. 17, was driving on the wrong side of the B270 roadway in Kaiserslautern when he struck a taxi cab, injuring a local civilian. The victim’s neck injuries were not serious, officials said. Truett’s blood-alcohol content at the time was reported to be 1.55. The legal limit in Germany is 0.5.

Truett was reduced in rank to E-1, sentenced to 45 days in jail and ordered to forfeit $933 in pay.
