Air Force O-5 Found Not Guilty of Wrongful Use of Methamphetamine

JAG Defense represented an Air Force O-5 at his court-martial for the wrongful use of methamphetamine, where he was found NOT GUILTY. Furious with the court-martial results, and citing a seldom-used provision in the AFI, our client’s chain of command then processed him for administrative separation based on the same allegation of methamphetamine use. Further, at his Board of Inquiry, the government introduced new evidence that our client had solicited a prostitute while TDY in the days leading up to his positive urinalysis test. Despite the admission of such prejudicial evidence, we were still able to convince the member panel that our client committed NO MISCONDUCT, and he will continue his Air Force career.
