Experienced and Aggressive Defense Attorneys Fighting Article 120 Sexual Assault Charges for Military Personnel

Sexual assault cases have garnered the attention of the President, the Secretary of Defense, Congress, and the media.  As a result Commanders do not take accusations of sex-related crimes lightly.  Congress has effectively forced Commanders to prosecute any sex assault case regardless of merit.   As part of this recent Congressional emphasis on the prosecution of sex assault cases, Congress has provided significant funding to the Military Departments; the Military Departments have appointed special prosecutors called Special Victim Prosecutors (SVPs) that focus solely on sexual crimes and they have become very active in prosecuting these types of cases.

To ensure you are able to defend against a “he said, she said” scenario, you need to have expert counsel with years of experience defending your rights.  The attorneys at Crisp and Associates Military Law have the experience, reputation and dedication you need on your side.  Sexual assault offenses are very serious and require the representation of an experienced legal professional to ensure that your rights are protected and your freedom defended.


Investigations Under Article 120

Understand that if you are tried and found guilty of a sex crime, you could be forced to endure confinement, prison, fines, restitution, and be listed in the sex offender registry for your state or place of residence.  At a minimum in most sexual assault cases, individuals are subjected to investigations from governmental agencies, including their branch of the military.  If the alleged victim was a civilian, you may be facing civilian prosecution and penalties as well.

While this time in your life may be confusing, you need to ensure that you take the time to speak with a military defense lawyer from Crisp and Associates Military Law.  We can provide you with representation at a court-martial or for an administrative hearing.
