Court-Martial Not Pursued Against Company Grade Military Officer Defended by Attorney Richard V. Stevens

Recently, the government chose not to pursue a court-martial against a company grade military officer defended by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.).

The client was accused of sexual misconduct and the government notified the defense they were considering court-martial. However, further negotiations resulted in an agreement that the client would face administrative action and be permitted to retire honorably.

While this military 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. For more information on the military justice system, please see our other blog posts.
