CG crewmember found not guilty

And he didn’t get fired.

He got what we refer to as the “Big Chicken Dinner”, so how do you figure he wasn’t fired?

You’re right. I read “reduction to paygrade E-1” and somehow missed the part that said “Tucker was sentenced to a bad conduct discharge.”

Bad conduct discharge is getting discharge from the cg so isn’t that being fired after you serve your time ?

Yes. He will serve his sentence, then will be discharged.
