Civilian Court-Martial Lawyers: Senior Military Officer and Commander Represented by Attorney Richard V. Stevens, Who Was Previously the Subject of Criminal Investigation, Promoted to Next Superior Command

Military Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a senior military officer and commander who was previously accused of criminal conduct and was investigated by military criminal investigators – and who had the case against him ultimately dropped after the conclusion of the investigation – has now been promoted to his next superior command.  The client was represented and defended by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.).

In years past, the officer client was wrongfully accused of serious criminal conduct and was subject to a lengthy military criminal investigation.  After that investigation was concluded, the case against the officer client was dropped and his record was cleared.  Now, consistent with that clear record, the senior military officer has received promotion to his next superior command. 

Due to the nature of this dropped military criminal case, no further details about this case can be released.  While the defense was successful in this case, it is important to understand that every case has different facts, and success in some previous case(s) 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 case.

Thank you.
