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.

Larceny – General Military Crimes – RESOLVED

United States Coast Guard v. E3 (Article 121, Larceny)

US Coast Guard Station San Juan, Puerto Rico

Client was accused of fellow Coast Guardsmen necklace. The alleged victim valued the necklace at over $5,000. Charges were preferred at a Special Courts Martial. Mr. Jordan successfully negotiated the case to be resolved at a Summary Court Martial. There, the Client was found guilty, but because he had immediately given the necklace back, and because of some special circumstances, the Client received minimal punishment. The unit did not initiate an adverse administrative separation action against Client. He still serves today.

Result: Case was negotiated to be resolved at Summary Court Martial. Finding was Guilty. Sentence was extra duty for 30 days. No adverse administrative separation action was initiated against client.
