Military Criminal Defense Attorney
Officer misconduct occurs when a member of the United States military commits
and act that has been deemed inappropriate upon conclusion of boards of
inquiry hearing, or a command investigation which seeks to identify an
act of misconduct in a specific incident or trend of incidents committed
by the officer. One can be accused of misconduct for something as simple
as being intoxicated, or something as devastating as murder. Anyone who
has been accused of officer misconduct should speak with an experienced
attorney as quickly as possible to begin building your case.
There are a variety of consequences that the subject of an administrative
hearing may suffer. In some cases, the subject of investigation is found
not to have committed an act of misconduct, and is thus relieved of charges
and allowed to return to his or her duties. In other cases, however, the
offender is found to be guilty, and must then suffer the penalty. If the
misconduct is believed to be criminal, then criminal proceedings may take
combat environment representation may be required. In other cases in addition to criminal cases, the military
discharge the accused, which can make it difficult to find work or make a proper
living outside of the military.
