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.

Overview of Vance AFB

This base is named in honor of Medal of Honor recipient, Lt Col Robert Vance, who was a World War II hero. Construction began at the base in 1941 with the objective of creating a suitable place for training aviation cadets. At this point of time, the base had not been named. The name Enid AFB was given to the base when the United States Air Force became a separate service in 1947. It was two years later that the base's name was changed in honor of the World War II hero.

The host unit here is the 71st Flying Training Wing, a part of the AETC. This wing is entrusted with the responsibility of nurturing top-notch pilots for the US Air Force, Marines and Navy. Pilots who have undergone training here also enter active service with Allies and in the Air Expeditionary Force.

Under the 71st FTW, there are three other groups - the 71st Operations Group, the 71st Mission Support Group and the 71st Medical group. Apart from these, the 3rd Fighter Training Squadron, the 8th, the 32nd, 33rd and 25th Flying Training Squadrons are also based here in addition to the 5th FTS reserve unit.

Recent Focus on Violence Against Women

As in all defense establishments across the United States, the spotlight is on violence against women, in particular sexual offenses against women, at Vance AFB too. The government is coming down strongly on such offenses and in the process taking the initiative to improve awareness among air force personnel about such crimes.

An unfortunate development of this necessary move is that instant and severe action may be taken when a charge of sexual assault or sexual harassment is brought against an air force man. Even when you are innocent of these charges, you may have little time or opportunity to establish the facts that are in your favor. In fact, in many cases, an innocent air force man may be proven guilty simply because he does not have the expertise to gather witnesses or facts proving his innocence.

When you are facing charges for serious crimes like sexual assault, rape, manslaughter or murder it is important for you to quickly prepare an effective an aggressive defense to present all the facts clearly. The support and guidance of an experienced Vance AFB military defense lawyer like Joseph Jordan is invaluable in such situations.
