New Office of the Special Trial Counsel

by | Apr 16, 2024 | Blog, Military Law

The Uniform Code of Military Justice has undergone multiple changes over the past sixteen years.  However, the most drastic took effect December 28, 2023.  Lawyers in the newly established Office of the Special Trial Counsel now have the control in deciding whether certain “covered” offenses will be prosecuted.  Covered offenses include sexual assault, homicide, domestic violence, revenge porn, among others.  Another major change is the way courts martial are conducted between the merits phase and sentencing phase.  These new changes can be daunting and confusing so it is in your best interest to seek legal counsel from attorneys who understand the new changes to military law and can help you achieve the best possible outcome.  We understand the system and can provide you the counsel you need.
