Panel of Marine Corps Officers Found USMC E-4 Not Guilty

USMC E-4 allegedly tested positive on a urinalysis test for cocaine prior to a deployment. At his court-martial, and after a year-long investigation, we attacked the command’s flawed urinalysis program and forced the government’s own expert to admit during cross-examination that unknowing ingestion or innocent ingestion was a reasonable possibility based on our client’s nanogram level. At the close of the government’s case, the defense rested without needing to present a shred of evidence or have our client testify. Result: A panel of Marine Corps officers needed only 24 minutes to find our client NOT GUILTY of the charge against him.
