Ei Incumbit Probation Qui Dicit.

Proof lies on him who asserts, not on him who denies. The concept is that one is innocent until proven guilty. Regardless of what the law says about reasonable doubt, there is an unwritten presumption within the ranks of the military that if you are charged with sexual assault, then you are guilty. The stakes are your life! Your military counsel works for the same military that charged you. Consider that as you choose who represents you in your potentially life altering case.

A Brief History of the Laughlin Air Force Base

Laughlin Air Force Base is located close to the Mexican border. As the largest pilot training base in the USAF and with its reputation as the 'friendliest little base in Texas', Laughlin is quite well known. This base boasts of more takeoffs and landings on weekdays than any airport across the U.S. Not surprising considering that Laughlin is also one of the busiest installations for specialized undergraduate pilot training within the Air Education and Training Command.

This base was set up in 1947 and named after Lt. Jack Thomas Laughlin who was the first Del Rio resident to give his life for the country during the World War II. After a brief inactivation in October 1949, this base resumed operations in mid-1951 at Langley Air Force Base. A second inactivation and subsequent reactivation a decade later in 1972 witnessed the base's shift to Laughlin Air Force Base. The base is home to the 47 th Flying Training Wing.

Present Day Laughlin Air Force Base

The Air Force has recently adopted new measures in a bid to curb the rising rate of sexual assault crimes within the ranks. Now, airmen who are proven guilty of sexual assault will be discharged from service. In addition, senior commanders will be required to review the action taken in such cases. In conjunction, both these measures are expected to bring down the incidents of sexual assault and trauma at military bases across the country.

In line with the current focus on preventing sexual assault in military establishments, several initiatives are being taken at Laughlin Air Force Base. As part of these initiatives, the base will soon hold its first two day Target Hardening and Intervention program. This class will train the participants in self-defense and risk reduction techniques, teach them how sex offenders often identify their victims and what one can do as a bystander to prevent such assault from taking place. The course curriculum is a mix of judo, krav maga, jiu jitsu, kickboxing and many other martial arts techniques.

Apart from teaching the enlisted members to defend themselves and others in event of sexual assault it is also important to educate them on the importance of getting competent legal help in such scenarios. As a highly experienced Laughlin military defense attorney, legal professionals like Joseph Jordan can provide the right guidance and advice for airmen and women facing a Laughlin sexual assault court martial and/ or other charges.
