Board of Inquiry
NOT GUILTY! Retained!
US Army v. CPT(Board of Inquiry)(Show Cause Board)
Army Reserves, Texas
Client is an awesome well accomplished female Captain. She serves as a Nurse. After coming up hot on a urinalysis, she was accused of taking unprescribed medications. After much research, digging and interviewing of witnesses, we presented her case before the board. We successfully showed the pharmacy she filled her script at incorrectly gave her the wrong medication. The medication she was incorrectly given looked identical to what she had been prescribed in the past, but it was a completely different drug. The drug has similar effects on the patient as well. We brought in a pharmacist to explain how this error occurs and how it often it occurs. The pharmacist also confirmed the effects of the drug. We also brought in witnesses who heard the pharmacist confess his error. We highlighted our client’s career and presented a long line of character witnesses on her behalf. She is now up for promotion to Major.
Case Result: NOT GUILTY! RETAINED!!
