The following are some representative cases from our defense of these types of allegations:
An 0-3 was being investigated for a second allegation offraternization after already having been given nonjudicial punishment for a first. The client was facing court-martial. Mr. George negotiated with the command and the client was ultimately given nonjudicial punishment andallowed to separate with an honorable discharge.
An O-3 was given a Letter of Reprimand for conduct unbecoming, sexual harassment, and fraternization. Ms. McCarthy drafted a memorandum pointing out the weaknesses in the evidence against the client, in addition to creating a packet that “showcased” the client as a good soldier. Although he still received the Letter of Reprimand, it was locally filed, which allowed the client to continue his career, and avoid an officer board.
