Trustworthy Defense In The Most Trying Times
A criminal charge can have a devastating effect on your life, jeopardizing your military career, your potential retirement and your future after military service. A criminal conviction may serve as grounds for early discharge, expose one to prison and constitute a criminal record after military service. Sex crimes are particularly devastating. Few accusations carry as great a social and professional stigma as charges involving sexual offenses.
When you are facing charges of sexual assault, you probably feel like no one is there to support you through the case. Some of your closest allies in your unit may turn their back on you to avoid the perceived stigma of guilt by association. Who will be there to support you?
