The Most Experienced Lawyer In The Courtroom Should Be Your Defense Counsel
Sexual assault is a serious charge that requires a tough, experienced and aggressive court-martial defense attorney to protect your rights and your freedom. In recent years, the military services have come under tremendous political pressure to get convictions based on sexual assault allegations. Each of the military services has developed special programs intended to strengthen the investigation and prosecution in these types of cases. Congress even took the unusual step of amending the Uniform Code of Military Justice to limit certain defenses previously available to accused service members.
Congress also weakened the protections in Article 32 of the UCMJ changing the pretrial investigation into a mere hearing. What was once a significant right of service members to discover the evidence against them and question their accuser is now a more limited hearing. Now more than ever, if you are accused of a sexual assault it is vital to have an experienced court-martial defense lawyer on your side.
