Congress Further Restricts Military Defense Lawyers

In a sexual assault case where there is little to no forensic evidence or witnesses, the case often comes down to little more than the word of the victim versus the word of the defendant. In these instances, military courts have often weighed the value of the Soldier’s testimony against his service record and those who were willing to vouch for him.

Yet now, this defense has effectively been taken away by a non-military entity (congress) that is looking at the defense from a civilian perspective and simply does not understand the value a soldier’s record and conduct really has. It’s yet another poor decision that is bound to mean more innocent Soldiers being wrongly convicted.
