Eye In The Sky said:I'll chime in "no". There are rules and regs who can lay/prefer charges, and the pers authorized to are usually detailed in ROs/Standing Os/Sqn Os. They can recommend, they can give lawful orders, etc but I believe the only Cpl that could lay a charge would be a badged MP in CFNIS.
I've recommended charges before as a SNCO but it was the Sgt-Major who laid them.
I apologize my question was poorly worded. So a corporal could recommend a private be charged.
