Army E-7 Avoids Confinement, Reduction and Discharge

Army E-7 was deployed to a Forward Operating Base in Afghanistan when he was discovered to be in possession of numerous Schedule III and IV drugs, to include prescription medications and steroids. A lengthy CID investigation ensued, and our Client was ultimately charged with the unlawful possession, use and distribution of numerous controlled substances, numerous charges of violating orders, obstruction of justice, false official statement, adultery, and fraternization. Client was facing decades of possible confinement time, as well as a Dishonorable or Bad Conduct Discharge from the Army, and hired JAG Defense to represent him. Over the course of 1½ years, JAG Defense investigated/negotiated/advocated on behalf of Client, culminating in our representation of him at his court-martial before a panel of Officer and Enlisted Members. RESULT: No Confinement, No Reduction in Paygrade, No Discharge.
