Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher dodged the most serious charges the Navy threw at him during his court martial, but his final sentence could be far worse than what the jury originally handed down.

If the convening authority approves the jury’s sentence of four months’ confinement and a reduction in rank from E7 to E6, Gallagher will be busted down to the rank of E1, according to Navy officials.

According to Navy regulations, the service requires anyone confined for over three months to be reduced to the lowest enlisted pay grade.

“Automatic reduction in pay grade is governed by Article 58a of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and regulations approved by the Secretary of the Navy contained in the Manual of the Judge Advocate General,” Lt. Sam Boyle, a Navy spokesman, told Task & Purpose.
