The Defense Advisory Committee on Investigation, Prosecution, and Defense of Sexual Assault in the Armed Forces (DAC-IPAD) will be having their next meeting on 25 January 2019.

DAC-IPAD is responsible for making many of the recommendations for changes in the UCMJ on sexual assault.

Historically, investigations have focused heavily on victim impact. On 25 January, they are holding a meeting to hear from accused members.

They are looking for speakers who can provide the panel and public with an overview of what it is like to be accused of sexual assault (penetrative or not), any due process concerns they had about the process, as well as the overall impact on their professional and personal lives. A mixed perspective of branch, race, and rank is welcomed.

False Allegations of Sexual Assault Research and the Military

Over the last week, I've seen an increase in search terms for our law firm related to false allegations of sexual assault. Perhaps it's because of the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court, but it may be timely to revisit a past blog on false allegations.

Air Force Court-Martial Results for February 2017

February 2017 court-martial results for the Air Force. It's still a mystery why Airmen continually go judge alone in Air Force drug cases. The data indicates that there is a 100% chance that an Air Force judge will find you guilty. Sentences trend around 30 days confinement in drug cases. The Air Force's willingness to continue to prosecute drug cases that would result in administrative separation in other branches is having no impact on the volume. It's the same from month to month.

The only acquittal came from a panel. The data suggests going panel in drug cases.
