A general court-martial is reserved for the most serious violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), and it is given the power to dispense a stricter penalty than is possible in summary courts-martial or special courts-martial. Before the prosecution can take the case to trial, the law requires a thorough Article 32 investigation to weigh the evidence and make sure there are sufficient grounds to support the charges.
This investigation gives your court-martial attorney a chance to challenge the evidence and testimony that will be used in the case, through cross examinations and other tactics. You can also bring forward proof that it is a
post-traumatic stress disorder case, which could cause a reevaluation of the evidence against you.
Sexual Assault Cases in Courts-Martial
Searching for a military attorney for general courts-martial? If you been arrest on sexual assault allegations, then your case could be somewhat more difficult. The military courts have been accused of being unjust when it comes to sex crimes in the armed forces and they are now cracking down on alleged offenders. Currently the way the system works is that the military commanding officer has authority to overthrow a court sentence but they believe that the chain of command needs to change. Sexual assault victims often face some sort of retaliation after they report the assault incident and the government is looking to correct this.
The statistics for sex crimes in the armed forces is alarmingly high and they are looking to reduce those numbers by inflicting harsh sentences that actually stick. They are looking to do a complete overhaul of the military justice system because currently many defendants charged with sexual assault are permitted to remain in the military. If you are facing rape or sexual assault charges then it is vital that you understand how the law relates to your particular case and how your charges would be handled in courts-martial.
