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.

Charged with Drug Use in the Military?

Joseph L. Jordan – Military Criminal Lawyer

Members of the U.S. Armed Forces face a much stricter standard when it comes to the use of illegal drugs and controlled substances. Members of the U.S. military are held to higher standards than civilians because it is their duty to defend their country. How can they perform that duty when they are impaired by illegal substances? As a result, members of the U.S. military can face serious penalties for using drugs.

Will I be discharged for using drugs?

In general, abuse of illegal drugs is considered "serious misconduct" and can lead to discharge, including dishonorable discharge. There can be mitigating factors that reduce the penalties for drug abuse, but the penalties are still serious and can affect your military career. Do not take chances if you have been charged with drug abuse while in the military. Instead of allowing yourself to be defended by a random military lawyer, hire your own military criminal attorney – one that you can trust to get the job done.
