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.

Wrongful Use of Controlled Substance, Tampering with Urinalysis – General Military Crimes

US Army v. E-6 Article 112a, Article 92

Fort Carson Colorado

Client was issued an Article 15 for tampering with his urinalysis and thus having ingested or used a controlled substance. Upon immediate review of his file, I advised that he turn down the Article 15 and request trial by Courts Martial. The reasoning was simple. When CID investigated this case, they interviewed the observer who watched Client urinate into his sample cup, cap the cup, seal the cup and hand it in. The observer saw nothing that was out of the ordinary. The unit withdrew the Article 15. They next decided to issue a General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand. We drafted a personal statement, put together a Good Soldier Book and provided our own legal review as to the issues at hand. It took 10 months for this case to resolve as the unit was incredulous that our Client would turn down the Article and sought every avenue to skewer our client. His GOMOR was rescinded, his FLAG lifted and he can now move on with his career.
