Recently, a senior field grade military officer facing court-martial charges/allegations of sexually assaulting a minor on diverse occasions had the charges and court-martial dropped by the government. No further disciplinary or adverse action was taken against the officer. The accused military member was defended by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.).
While this military court-martial case was successfully defended, it is important to understand that every case has different facts, and success in previous cases does not guarantee success in any particular future case. No military lawyer or civilian defense lawyer, including those who specialize in military law, can guarantee the outcome of any military trial or case.
