Military Sexual Crime
Accused of committing a sexual offense? Military Defense Lawyer Explains
Accusations concerning crimes of a sexual nature can be devastating personally and to your military career. Article 134 charges, discharge hearings and courts martial can all be consequences of allegations of rape, assault, adultery and other sex crimes. In addition to the military justice you face, criminal charges can bring about a term of incarceration, registration as a sex offender, fines and a permanent criminal record.
Although you have the right to a military lawyer, this person may be inexperienced in successfully resolving sex crime cases. Also, they cannot begin defending your case until charges have been filed. Experience has demonstrated, however, that effective defense against sex offenses must be initiated quickly, as soon as you become aware that you are under investigation. Fortunately, you also have a right to a civilian military criminal defense lawyer to protect your freedoms and career.
Currently, there is a policy to prosecute all sexual assault allegations in the military, no matter the evidence to hand. That is where The Law Offices of Haytham Faraj, PLLC steps forward. The firm has never lost a military criminal defense case and their lead attorney is the only lawyer in the country to try 3 major war crime cases and win each of them. He has the advantage of having proudly served in the Marine Corps, both as an enlisted Marine and an infantry officer prior to becoming an attorney. 26 years of combined legal experience along with the firm’s working knowledge of the UCMJ make them the ideal choice for military members seeking an effective defense.
Article 32 Hearings
Sex offenses demand thorough and experienced investigation into what actually occurred. How they are defended and the manner in which weak points in a prosecutor’s case are found and exposed can differ from other crimes. At times, the firm’s exploration into the facts can result in your charges being dismissed at an Article 32 hearing. In some instances, your case must move forward and the firm’s record in trials speaks volumes for the commitment they have to their clients. One of their more notable cases was in successfully defending an officer who was accused of rape by a female officer and which later became the subject of an HBO film.
Your future, in many important areas of your life may be at stake if you are found guilty of a sex crime. The attorneys are here to see that justice is served on your behalf.
