Naval Officer Found Not Guilty After Positive Urinalysis for Cocaine

Based upon a positive urinalysis test, a Naval officer was charged with cocaine use. At his General Court-Martial, he faced the possibility of confinement for 5 years and a Dismissal from the Navy if convicted. Our attorneys focused their attack on the government’s lack of any evidence that our client knowingly used cocaine. Result: without even having to testify, our client was found NOT GUILTY by a panel of officers.
