At JAG Defense, our experienced military defense lawyers have successfully defended countless members of all branches of military service against allegations of sex crimes. Working with forensic experts, we exhaustively research each and every case to determine the most effective defense possible and secure the very best possible outcome. We invite you to review our Military Sex Offense Representative Cases for a sampling of some of the successes we have been able to achieve.
All branches of the military aggressively prosecute allegations of rape, aggravated sexual assault, aggravated sexual contact, abusive sexual contact, and indecent acts. Such allegations fall under Article 120, UCMJ and/or Article 134, UCMJ. Quite often, the prosecution of a military member under such a charge is based solely upon the statement of a single accuser. If convicted of a sexual offense, a military member faces the likelihood of very lengthy confinement and punitive discharge. In addition, a military member convicted in a court-martial of a sex offense will be required to register as a sex offender. For all these reasons, it is important for any member accused of a sex offense in the military to obtain an aggressive military defense attorney who is experienced in defending these types of cases.
If you have been accused of a military sex offense, we invite you to contact JAG Defense for a free consultation with one of our military defense lawyers.
In addition, please review our overview of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for FY14, which included significant changes to military law, particularly with regard to military sex offenses.
