NSA Bahrain Military Defense Attorney for Military Crimes
A military crime is a serious affair. The U.S military has zero tolerance
for crimes and enforces strict discipline and punishments through court
martial, separation boards and administrative courts.
Military crimes can be divided into several categories. Some of these may
not attract a court martial, but others do. Military crimes include sexual
assault, rape, adultery, solicitation, pandering, drug crimes, larceny,
manslaughter, attempted murder, obstruction of justice and many others.
Joseph Jordan has worked as a
NSA Bahrain court martial attorney. If you are facing charges for crimes in
NSA Bahrain, contact Joseph Jordan for legal representation.
A brief history of Naval Support Activity Bahrain
The U.S engagement with Juffair (the site of NSA Bahrain) began more than
60 years ago with the U.S Middle East Force. The U.S Navy set up a small
naval force on some land it shared with the Royal Navy. The initial objective
was to provide communication and logistical support to vessels that were
out on marine expeditions.
The Royal Navy left Juffair in 1971 and 10 acres of land formerly used
by the Royal Navy were transferred to the U.S Navy. Eight years later,
the area was named as the Administrative Support Unit Bahrain.
In 1992, to reflect the increasing role of the U.S Navy in the region,
the area was renamed as the Administrative Support Unit South West Asia.
In 1997, the unit was expanded and renamed as NSA Bahrain.
Present day NSA Bahrain
More than 6000 military personnel, civilian employees and their dependents
are stationed at NSA Bahrain. The base is home to more than 90 commands,
including the U.S Naval Forces Central Command. The 5
th Fleet, consisting of 12 units is also headquartered here.
Other important units are the Regional Legal Service Office- Europe, Africa
and Southwest Asia and the U.S Maritime Liaison Office.
In one of the U.S Navy's most high profile cases in recent times, a
Chief Master-at-Arms stationed at NSA Bahrain was accused of promoting
gambling and fraternization with prostitutes between 2005 and 2006. There
were also allegations that some members of the Military Working Dog Division
were subjected to racial discrimination, humiliation, sexual harassment
and hazing with the officer's collusion.
An investigation was conducted under a U.S Navy JAG. The report implicated
the Chief Master-at-Arms. But despite the report's findings, the officer
was promoted. The officer's successor committed suicide when the report
came out. In 2009, the Navy announced that the officer's request to
extend his enlistment had been denied and he consequently retired in 2010.
Engage a NSA Bahrain
When the military charges you with a crime, it also allows you to engage
a JAG lawyer for your defense. But consider that JAG lawyers are often
overburdened with work and duties. While it may be a question of life
and liberty to you, they may not be as empathetic.
So what are your options? Thankfully, military rules allow you to engage
a civilian lawyer in cases involving military crimes.
Mr. Jordan has successfully represented two different sailors against very
serious sexual assault cases at NSA Bahrain. In one case, Mr. Jordan and
his team were able to keep the case against their client from going to
trial due to a severe lack of credible evidence. Case investigation is
vitally key to any representation an attorney can provide. Mr. Jordan
has a proven track record of preparing cases in order to give his client's
the best chance at securing a positive outcome.
There are many advantages of engaging Joseph Jordan as your
NSA Bahrain military defense attorney. He was in the military for 11 years and while he was there, he distinguished
himself as an army prosecutor and JAG lawyer. Having been on the other
side of the table, he understands how the prosecution works and this allows
him to pre-empt arguments and accusations.
He is known for his solid counter arguments in the defense of his clients
during court martial and non judicial proceedings. If you would like Joseph
Jordan to represent you during your legal hearing, please give us a call.
We also offer free case evaluation and consultation.
