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.

Sexual Harassment Claims – Adverse Military Administrative Actions – Case Dismissed

U.S. Navy v. LT (NJP) (Officer Misconduct, Sexual Harassment Claims)

Port Hueneme, California

This officer was notified that his command was pursuing a non-judicial punishment against him for four counts of sexual harassment in the work place. After receiving the run around and realized that he wasn’t going to get any help from the JAG defense attorneys the officer decided to hire us. We then began interviewing each person from the work place and those that made these allegations against him, and he also began obtaining his “Good Sailor Packet” by getting character statements, reference letters, and awards. Once we began our investigation we discovered that many people in his work place didn’t like him for personal reasons. He was a new LT that replaced a very relaxed CMDR, came into the work place and made some small changes that were within the Navy rules and regulations; however, most of the Sailors didn’t like these new changes, and they needed to find a way to get rid of him fast. They decided to make up allegations of sexual harassment of things the LT allegedly said to the Sailors and did to them. (Please note that making any kind of sexual harassment or sexual assault allegation is serious, not tolerated in the military, and could ruin a person’s life and military career. Do not do it. Small issues like this can be avoided by speaking to the other party.) We carefully and methodically scrutinized every piece of the investigation. We put together his rebuttal matters with supporting statements from these interviews that we conducted, pointing out the deficiencies in the government’s investigation, and stating that this LT did not have the type of character whatsoever to say or do such things. The LT was one happy man. All charges were dismissed along with the non-judicial punishment.
