It is more difficult for soldiers because generally the SOFA (Status Of Forces Agreement) with the host country specifies that offenses committed by soldiers are to be settled by the JAG (Judge Advocate General) but the minimum sentence has to be equivalent to the one mandated by law in that country (exception is Arabic countries). But civilians working for the military in a host country are 100% subject to the local law. No exceptions.
