Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's Convenient Opinions Regarding Due Process - Does An Accused Have The Right To Be Heard, And The Right To A Fair Investigation?

 

Military Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News: 

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has long championed herself as an advocate for women's rights and a crusader to change the disciplinary systems on college campuses and the justice system in the military to give "more voice" to complainants alleging sexual assault and sexual misconduct.  As she loudly pressed her position, administrative and/or criminal due process seemingly was not her concern.  She advocated against due process rights for the accused, limiting investigations into one-sided shams, attempting to create a presumption of guilt instead of a presumption of innocence, pushing the narrative of blindly "believing the victim."  

I have previously posted about the danger of the positions she advocated to the fairness of the systems she was ravaging.  I have also previously posted about Senator Gillibrand's hypocrisy regarding those she supported in the Democratic Party, when it suited her ambitions.  Please see:

http://militaryadvocate.blogspot.com/2020/05/welcome-to-bizarro-world-political.html

Please understand that my blog posts do not reflect my personal political affiliations.  I don't post about party politics.  I only post about issues that impact my profession as a criminal defense lawyer practicing in the military justice system.  I take issue with any politician on either side of the aisle who misguidedly tampers with the military justice system in the name of politics.  It just so happens that Democratic Senator Gillibrand has made it her mission to tamper with the college disciplinary system and the military justice system to see just how far she can dismantle due process.  

Senator Gillibrand has now come out with a statement that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo should resign, as more complainants claim to have suffered sexual harassment, assault, and boorish behavior directed at them by Governor Cuomo.  However, I think it is important to consider one of Senator Gillibrand's initial statements about these sexual misconduct allegations, which she reportedly made on 24 February.   After expressing that the sexual harassment allegations against Governor Cuomo were serious and concerning, Senator Gillibrand reportedly said:

"Governor Cuomo also has the right to be heard and he has come forward and has denied these allegations..."

What?!  He, as an accused, has the right to be heard?  He has the right to publicly deny these allegations and have those denials be fairly considered?  Judgment should be withheld while a fair investigation is launched?  

These are words Democratic Senator Gillibrand would NEVER utter regarding an accused college kid or military member.  In those cases, the accused individuals should be presumed guilty and limited in their rights to investigate the allegations and defend themselves.  These are words Democratic Senator Gillibrand would NEVER utter regarding a politician on the other side of the aisle.  But, she took this position when then Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden faced sexual assault and sexual misconduct allegations, and she initially took this position when Democratic Governor Cuomo faced his sexual misconduct allegations.  

Why does this hypocrisy matter?  It matters because it pulls back the curtain on how politically motivated her position is with regard to the issue of alleged sexual assault and sexual misconduct.  It raises serious issues regarding her credibility, sincerity, and motives when she advocates to crucify college kids and military members without fair process.  In short, her hypocrisy should be considered, and her position should be rejected, when she again crusades for even more due process limiting changes to college disciplinary systems and the military justice system.

CIVILIAN COURT-MARTIAL DEFENSE LAWYER: SENIOR ENLISTED MILITARY MEMBER REPRESENTED BY ATTORNEY RICHARD V. STEVENS IS GRANTED COURT-MARTIAL CLEMENCY

 

Military Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a senior enlisted military member defended by attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) was granted court-martial clemency for a previous minor court-martial conviction. 

Prior to being represented by Mr. Stevens, the client had been convicted in a general court-martial that was partially overturned on appeal.  Mr. Stevens and a new military defense counsel represented the client in the re-trial.  The overturned portion of the case was an alleged sexual assault.  In the re-trial, the client was found not guilty of this sexual assault allegation by the court members (addressed in previous blog post).  The minor offense the client had previously been convicted of was not overturned by the appellate court, so that conviction stood.  However, the defense team in the re-trial case submitted a court-martial clemency request asking that the conviction and sentence for that minor offense be set-aside. 

As you may be aware, clemency in the military justice system has been severely limited by the changes to the system in recent years.  However, for minor offenses, clemency can still be requested in the military.  In this case, we did request clemency for the previous conviction and sentence, and the clemency request was approved.  The conviction and sentence for the remaining minor offense were set-aside. 

While this military court-martial and sexual assault 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.

CIVILIAN COURT-MARTIAL DEFENSE LAWYER: JUNIOR ENLISTED MILITARY MEMBER REPRESENTED BY ATTORNEY RICHARD V. STEVENS HAS SEXUAL ASSAULT COURT-MARTIAL CASE DROPPED (UCMJ ARTICLE 120)

 

Military Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a junior enlisted military member defended by attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) had the sexual assault court-martial case he faced dropped by the military after a pretrial motion hearing (UCMJ Article 120).

The military client was accused of, and investigated for, allegedly sexually and physically assaulting his former wife.  Their on and off again relationship and marriage finally ended badly, and the complainant made her allegations against the client, as divorce and child custody issues were pending.  She claimed she had been physically and sexually assaulted by the client during the marriage.  Court-martial charges were preferred against the client and the case proceeded past the Article 32 hearing and was referred to trial by general court-martial. 

As the case proceeded toward the “felony” type military trial, the defense filed multiple motions, many of which raising issues about the complainant’s credibility and motives.  Just weeks away from the motion hearing and trial, the complainant supported an alternative disposition for the case.  The government, therefore, dropped the court-martial charges and case against the client, and resolved the case with administrative action instead. 

Had there been a court-martial trial and sex crime conviction in this case, the client could have been sentenced to a dishonorable discharge, a lengthy term of confinement in prison (possibly decades) and, in addition, he would have been required to register as a sex offender.  Thankfully, the court-martial case was dropped and he was spared this risk of devastation to his future. 

While this military court-martial and sexual assault 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.

While these military cases and courts-martial were successfully defended, it is important to understand that every case has different allegations, witnesses, evidence, legal issues, facts, and parties.  Consequently, 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.

Thank you.

Blog postscript: I (attorney Richard V. Stevens) am a former active duty military lawyer (JAG). My perspectives and advice, therefore, are based upon my experience as military defense lawyer and as a civilian criminal defense lawyer practicing exclusively in the area of military law and military justice. This blog addresses issues in military law, military justice, military discipline, military defense, court-martial practice, the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and other military and/or legal topics. Nothing posted in this blog should be substituted for legal advice in any particular case. If you seek legal advice for a particular case, please contact The Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens for a free consultation. These military defense law offices are located in the Washington DC, Northern Virginia, Maryland, National Capital Region (NCR), but the military defense representation is worldwide – when necessary, the attorneys travel to wherever the client is stationed around the world.
