CIVILIAN COURT-MARTIAL DEFENSE LAWYERS: Senior Military Officer Cleared to Return to Duty

Military Criminal Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a senior military officer who was facing allegations of misconduct and removal from position was cleared to return to duty after the investigation was concluded. The accused military member was defended by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.).

In the case, allegations of misconduct were levied against the senior officer who was suspended from duty.  The defense submitted a detailed rebuttal to the allegations, including citations to evidence, and requested a more formal investigation in which the defense identified witnesses to be interviewed.  During the more formal investigation, the defense, again, submitted a detailed rebuttal to the allegations, attaching evidence to be considered.  When the investigation was concluded, the officer was cleared to return to duty.  

Due to the nature of allegations and the investigations, 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.
