Kalamazoo & Grand Rapids Military Sex Offense Attorney

Defense for Military Sex Offenses in MI

In the United States, sexual assault in the military has come to our national attention. In 2012, reported instances of sexual assault rose 6%. Unfortunately, many additional sex crimes may go unreported. The Department of Defense (DOD) has begun cracking down on these crimes, working to enforce the law and to better serve victims and encourage them to come forward. These crimes are serious, but that doesn’t mean that false accusations don’t happen. Our team at Willis Law can represent you and fight for your side of the story to be heard.

Examples of Military Sex Crimes

There are many different types of actions that may fall under the category of sex offenses, including but not limited to:

  • Child pornography
  • Sexual assault / rape
  • Indecent exposure

Defenses to Charges of Military Sexual Assault

There are various possible defenses to sexual assault charges. Claiming that alcohol obstructed your judgment is not, however, a possible defense. The court will not consider a defendant less responsible for their actions because they chose to consume alcohol beyond their capacity. In addition, being married to the victim is not a defense.

Possible defenses do include:

  • You were wrongly identified as the sexual assault perpetrator
  • You have an alibi for the time the alleged assault occurred
  • The prosecution fails to convince
  • The alleged victim gave consent

Protecting Your Rights & Interests

In civilian court, you are innocent until proven guilty. In a military investigation, you could be penalized even before conviction. At this time, you may be facing serious penalties, including demotion, discharge, and / or court martial. Our military sex offenses attorneys are tough, knowledgeable, and ready to go to bat for you. Penalties for sex crime convictions include expensive fines and prison time. If you are facing a criminal investigation, you need to choose the experienced counsel that makes a difference. We can help you understand your current position and advise you as to the steps ahead, building a strong defense from day one.
