US Army v. CW2 (Article 120, Sexual Assault of a Minor)
Fort Hood, Texas
Client came under investigation for sexual assault of a child based off of ex-wife’s claim. In this case, after conducting a thorough preliminary investigation, The Jordan UCMJ Law Group was confident in the innocence of this client. Normally we advise the clients do not subject themselves to interrogation by an investigative agency. In this case, Mr. Jordan, independently and thoroughly investigated this case. Then, he attended the interrogation personally with the client. As it turned out the claim was wholly and patently false.
Result: The case was dropped before charges were even brought.
Article 120 is the military statute which defines rape, aggravated sexual assault, aggravated sexual contact, and abusive sexual contact. These offenses include different types of unlawful, forced sexual activities on another person. Charges related to sexual misconduct involving a minor fall under Article 120b.
