EI INCUMBIT
PROBATIO 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.

AWOL – General Military Crimes – SENTENCE REDUCTION

U.S. Army v. E-3 (AWOL)

The Client was charged with two AWOL’s, and threatening a Superior Officer. The Client was allegedly AWOL for approximately 5 years before he was picked up on a warrant. Prior to Mr. Jordan’s appearance in this case, a Senior NCO convinced the Client that his Military Defense counsel did not have the Client’s best interests at heart and that he should go AWOL again.

Upon the Client’s second arrest on warrants, Mr. Jordan was brought on board to represent this client. Over the course of 5 months, a deal was reached that the maximum amount of time the Client would serve in confinement was 6 months.

Result: Guilty, 3 months confinement, Reduction to E-1 and Bad Conduct Discharge. Mr. Jordan successfully beat the deal by effectively cross-examining the Government’s sentencing witnesses on how they treated their soldier. Impressive mitigating circumstances existed prompting the Judge to have mercy upon Mr. Jordan’s Client.
