"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.

US Air Force

Overview and history of Nellis AFB

Nellis Air Force Base is part of the US Air Force's Air Combat Command located to the north-east of Las Vegas, Nevada. The base covers over 14,000 acres, with an additional 7000 acres of airspace intended for military flight operations.

Originally, the base was a Las Vegas Army Air Field and the site of the Army Air Corps Flexible Gunnery School. After the end of World War II, the base was closed in 1947, and reopened two years later with a new name paying homage to Lieutenant William Harrell Nellis. It initially served as an advanced pilot training base and later started F-86 flight training and gunnery for pilots. The base played an important role in preparing airmen for successful air attacks during the Korean War.

Today, it trains pilots in composite strike forces in all types of aircrafts that are part of the U.S Air Force inventory. The base comprises seven units, with the 57 th Wing being its operational element. It also has over 50 big and small tenant units.

Nellis AFB is a census-designated place that includes military family housing, lodging and dormitories. It is home to a diverse racial population and has a household median income of less than $40,000.

Over the years, the base has witnessed its share of serious UCMJ charges. While article 15 actions are quite common at the base, airmen have also faced courts-martial on grave charges.

The courts-martial at Nellis AFB have revolved around a variety of UCMJ crimes. Wrongful possession of child pornography, distribution of controlled substances, and misuse of military identification cards are some instances.

It is important to note that, regardless of the nature of the charge or complexity of the case, a reliable Nellis AFB UCMJ lawyer will approach every case with meticulousness and an uncompromising attitude. The support of a seasoned attorney can make a big difference to the outcome of the case. This is precisely why accused airmen should not waste a moment's time to seek professional legal counsel.

The US military has a no-tolerance attitude to dereliction of duty and places high value on code of conduct. Airmen at the receiving end of accusations often feel like nobody is on their side, and are often cornered into pleading guilty. The fact of the matter is, airmen can explore multiple legal options to emerge unscathed or at least escape serious penalties for their alleged crimes.
