Our client was charged with burglary and aggravated sexual assault after breaking into a female Soldier’s barracks and having sex with her while she was very intoxicated.
Unfortunately, the client made multiple confessions after the incident and DNA testing confirmed that he did indeed have sex with the woman. Other witnesses corroborated that the female Soldier was so intoxicated that she had to be carried to her bed after “passing out” on the floor.
The defense, working against a mountain of evidence, obtained their own DNA and toxicology experts to attack the government’s case; however, after nearly four days of motions and trial, the client was convicted.
We went down swinging however. While the government initially sought ten years in confinement and a dishonorable discharge, the client was sentenced to only three years and a bad conduct discharge. The case will be appealed.
