CSM was initially charged with wrongful sexual contact, indecent acts and fraternization, following an incident that took place between him and his driver inside their vehicle. The driver was bragging about the size of his penis and trying to “prove it” by revealing himself to the CSM.

Exasperated, CSM grabbed the E- 4’s ACU trousers and tugged on his boxer shorts, telling him to cut it out and “put it away.” The driver subsequently claimed that the CSM sexually assaulted him numerous times in the vehicle.

From the outset of proceedings, the prosecution overcharged, seeking jail time and a Bad Conduct Discharge, potentially costing the CSM a 1.4 million dollar retirement.

The client pled guilty to a lesser included offense of fraternization and was found not guilty on all other charges.

Client received only a one-grade reduction.
