US Army v. E-7 (Article 93 Cruelty and Maltreatment to Subordinates x4, Article 128 Assault x 6, Article 134 x 2)
Fort Campbell, Kentucky
The case revealed that Client had received a GOMOR for the same charges she faced at Courts Martial. Multiple soldiers accused our Client of assaulting, and maltreating them. The case clearly showed that there were some personality conflicts and that Client likely was too familiar with the Soldiers. However, the case also showed that the majority of the charges ultimately amounted to horseplay and were not in fact assaults. Unfortunately, under the UCMJ, an assault is any unwanted touching. Fortunately, the case was not as egregious as the Government counsel hoped.
Result: NOT GUILTY of 2 out of 6 specifications of Article 128 Assault. NOT GUILTY OF ALL Article 134 Offenses, NOT GUILTY of 2 of the 4 Article 93 (maltreatment offenses).
Sentence: Reduction to E-6. NO CONFINEMENT. NO PUNITIVE DISCHARGE!
