The government charged a Fort Hood soldier with two specifications of rape, eight specifications of wrongful use of marijuana and cocaine, and four specifications of being absent without leave from his unit. The soldier decided to retain my services after his Article 32 resulted in a recommendation that all charges go forward to a General Court-Martial.
Once retained, I began to aggressively investigate the case. Due to my pretrial investigation, I was able to undercut the stories of the two alleged rape victims. After the alleged victims' stories were discredited, I successfully advanced several pretrial motions for my client. These motions made the government's job of prosecuting the case a lot more difficult.
As a result of my efforts, the government decided to approve a chapter separation for the soldier. The court-martial charges were dismissed. The client, who spent almost six months in pretrial confinement (over four months before I became involved in the case), was released from pretrial confinement. On that day, he called me from his home to tell me that he was with his wife and kids.
