JAG Defense Team Argued That Sailor Accidentally Ingested Cocaine

Navy E-6 tested positive on a random urinalysis test for the second time in his career. After being informed of the results of the urinalysis test, the Sailor provided a sworn, written statement admitting that his roommate frequently used cocaine and marijuana at their apartment. The Sailor also admitted that he thought he felt the effects of cocaine on the day before his urinalysis test. At his administrative discharge board, we convinced the members that the Sailor could have accidentally ingested cocaine. Result: By a vote of 3-0, the member panel found NO MISCONDUCT and our client was RETAINED in the U.S. Navy.
