Successful Defense of U.S. Army Brigadier General in Court-Martial
Served as lead trial counsel in a high-profile court-martial of a U.S. Army Brigadier General. The General was the highest-ranking officer ever to be accused of sexual assault. A politically charged case from inception, the court granted the defense’s motion for relief for unlawful command influence upon reconsideration and imposed no jail sentence or dismissal from service. The General was sentenced to forfeit $5,000 a month for four months and was given a letter of reprimand.
