COURT MARTIAL DEFENSE
How To Take The Fight To The Military Justice System And Win
The military justice system is designed to obtain convictions for the sake of “good order and discipline.” It is not a system designed to discover truth. Overzealous prosecutors and investigators do not get command recognition for admitting when they were wrong, when they wasted thousands of dollars and hundreds of man-hours trying to validate a bogus theory or a false accusation. Even if you are so much as under investigation right now, the sum of the military justice system, with every asset at its disposal, exists for the purpose of convicting you. It sucks. It’s not right and it most certainly is not justice.
What You Are Up Against In a Military Court Martial
The first step in the process of a military court martial is what is known as the preferral of charges. This is the functional equivalent of an indictment in the military, but here is an important factor to consider. By the time your charges are preferred, the military justice system has spent anywhere from three months to over a year building a case against you. That’s not to say that the case they built against you is solid; rather, that they are heavily invested in your conviction. They don’t admit wrongdoing willingly.
