Air Force E-4 Found Not Guilty of Indecent Acts with Child

Air Force E-4 was charged with possession of child pornography and indecent acts with his 4-year old stepson. After securing a favorable pre-trial agreement on the child pornography charge, our client pleaded not guilty to the indecent acts. At his court-martial, we challenged the competency of the child as a witness and objected to his testimony. After repeated attempts by the government to establish the child’s ability to testify as a witness, the military judge sustained our objection and ruled that the child was not competent to testify. Result: Our client was found NOT GUILTY of the indecent acts charge.
