Unlawful command influence and administrative separation: two bites at the apple?

Can the service still separate him or her administratively based on an allegation of having committed a serious offense? That is the question presented in a case in the U.S. Marine Corps. Carl Prine has the story here in the San Diego Union-Tribune. A misconduct discharge can have lifelong stigmatizing effects.
