Our client was accused of raping a fellow Soldier in Korea. We were retained on this case immediately after the rape allegation was made, with the goal of keeping the charges from ever being preferred.

With the assistance of military counsel CPT Onyango, we launched our investigation into the alleged rape. We discovered that our client had been drinking shots and tequila in “The Ville” outside of Camp Humphreys with another female Soldier. After drinking, the female Soldier invited our client to her room for sex.

Because she initiated the intercourse, we considered the rape allegation a case of “buyer’s remorse” and began working with the Special Victim Prosecutor to keep the charges from being preferred against the client.

After lengthy negotiations with the government, no charges were preferred against our client.
