Section 31-2A-73

(Article 73.) Petition for a new trial.

At any time within two years after approval by the convening authority of a court-martial sentence, the accused may petition the Adjutant General for a new trial on the grounds of newly discovered evidence or fraud on the court-martial.

At any time within 45 days of discovery of fraud on the court-martial or newly discovered evidence, the accused may petition for new trial with the Military Court-Martial Review Panel. In the event the accused's case is pending before the Alabama Supreme Court, the appeal shall be stayed until the Military Court-Martial Review Panel rules on the petition.
