250.39 Penalty for contempt.—A person may not use disorderly, contemptuous, or indecorous language or expression to or before any military court, or any member of such court, in open court, tending to interrupt its proceedings, or impair the respect due its authority, commit any breach of the peace, or make any noises or other disturbances directly tending to interrupt its proceedings. After hearing before the military judge, any person who is found to have violated this subsection may be committed by warrant by the Adjutant General or a military judge for not more than 30 days to the jail of the county in which the court sits or may be fined up to $100 per offense. For purposes of this subsection, a summary court-martial officer who is not qualified to act as a military judge in general or special courts-martial may conduct the contempt hearing and adjudicate a fine, but may not issue a warrant for confinement.
