These cases can include rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, abusive sexual contact, sexual assault of a minor, indecent viewing, indecent recording, forcible pandering, indecent exposure, and other Article 120 and Article 120(c) offenses. Eglin Air Force base is nestled along the beautiful Florida panhandle that is also home to rowdy spring break crowds every year. The infusion of alcohol and the party scene can be sure to lead to serious allegations and charges almost every year. Victims of sexual assault deserve real justice, but charging and ruining the career of an innocent Airman out of Eglin is not justice.
We defend cases such as conspiracy to defraud the military, BAH fraud, OHA fraud, extortion, larceny, wrongful appropriation, and more. Wrongful appropriation is a charge levied against members of the military for incidents large and small. We’ve defended them all and we know how to win those cases.Fraud is often the result of human error and such errors shouldn’t cost someone their career. A missing weapon or piece of gear is often just “missing” and not stolen.
We represent service members facing charges including murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault, assault, and cases involving self-defense and defense of another. Yes, we defend murder and manslaughter cases and that includes cases where the defendent was objectively the person who caused harm or death. What starts out as a typical bar fight can end with a supreme error in judgement that leads to a fight turning into something much more. If the military justice system wants to make an example out of you, they will do so at your expense. Just because you have made a terrible mistake does not mean that you abdicate your right to fight back in court.
We defend cases involving drug possession, drug distribution, drug importation, drug manufacturing, drug trafficking, positive urinalysis cases, tampering with urinalysis cases, and more. These cases often involve illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, LSD, methamphetamines, cocaine, ecstasy, molly, opioids, analogues, and more. We are not sure when or how the military is going to rectify the fact that marijuana is legal in many states and heavily prevalent among Spring locations like the Florida panhandle. However, we’ve seen the military justice system make one too many mistakes regarding possession or suspected use of marijuana to sit back and let go on without a fight.
These include charges such as fraternization, unauthorized absence (AWOL), disobeying a lawful order, conduct unbecoming an officer, and much more. Once again, good men and women make mistakes. Whereas the military justice system is slow to admit their mistakes, it has an unreasonable expectation that an Airman must instantly admit their mistake and accept the harshest punishment available under the UCMJ.
