COURTS-MARTIAL RESULTS

All charges dismissed against E-6 accused of molesting a twelve year old girl at FT Belvoir, Virginia.  Attorney Crisp proved to the Article 32 Investigating Officer that the girl had fabricated the allegations to get attention.  He was able to uncover similar false allegations the girl had made against others at other military installations despite the attempts of the government to prevent their introduction at the hearing.  As a result, the Investigating Officer recommended, and the Convening Authority agreed, to dismiss the charges against him.
