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.

Court Martial – Military Sexual Assault – NO PUNITIVE DISCHARGE! NO RANK REDUCTION!

US Marines v. E-5

Marine Corps Base Quantico

While a Corporal, client was charged with violations of Article 120 (Sexual Assault), Article 134 (Extra-Marital Affair), and Article 107 (False Official Statement). We did a thorough investigation into the alleged victim and found out that whenever something didn’t go her way…she would file a complaint. In this case, she was very clearly interested in our client. One of the interesting aspects about this case is the fact that the very next day after she was allegedly sexually assaulted, she woke up before our client, and took care of his kids. Then, when he woke up, she took him for a ride in her car…and basically spent the day with him driving him around town helping him acquire what he needed to fix his truck. When my client opted to ignore her and stay with his wife, the alleged victim filed a sexual assault claim 1 month later. When we finally got to Court over two years after the allegation, my client had been promoted from Corporal to Sergeant in the Marine Corps.

Verdict: Found NOT GUILTY of Sexual Assault, but guilty of the extra-marital affair and false official statement.

Sentence: 40 Days Confinement. NO PUNITIVE DISCHARGE! NO RANK REDUCTION!
