Dealing With Military Charges at Fort Hood
As a proud member of the United States Army, you have dedicated your life to defending your country. If you are facing military criminal charges or even under investigation, you need an attorney that is equally committed to defending your rights.
In the military, there are both criminal charges and conduct charges. Conduct charges can arise from certain actions committed by a member of the military even though that conduct would not be a crime in the civilian world. Criminal charges can arise when a member of the military commits a criminal act either while on post or while off post.
It is possible, although not very common, for a member of the military to commit an act off post and be prosecuted both by the military and the civilian courts. While a conduct charge may not carry civilian consequences (such as being labeled a "felon" or registering as a sex offender), having a conduct charge sustained against you will, nevertheless, have significant ramifications on your career.
The military justice process is different from the civilian state and federal court systems. In the military justice system whether you retain civilian counsel or not, in most cases you will be appointed a military lawyer from the Judge Advocate General's Corps. These court appointed lawyers are licensed attorneys and familiar with the ins and outs of military law. This being said, it is often to your benefit to have a civilian attorney retained who understands the inter-workings of the military to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are not just pushed through the military justice system without all avenues of your defense being explored and exhausted.
At the Law Offices of Jason Trumpler, we have a tremendous amount of respect for those who have served. Jason Trumpler, due to stop loss, served over 9 years in the United States Army Reserve as a psychological operations specialist. He was an enlisted solider and did tours at Ft. Knox, Kentucky, Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, and Darmstadt, Germany along with an eight month deployment to Bosnia in 1995 and 1996. Mr. Trumpler was also prepped for deployment to Iraq in February 2003 due to stop loss before ultimately receiving his Honorable Discharge in April 2003 due to the United States Army's inability to deploy him prior to his ETS date.
If you have been questioned or if you have been told an investigator wants to speak with you, experienced legal counsel should be retained promptly. You may or may not be afforded representation from the Judge Advocate General's Corps during the infancy of an investigation. If you have not given a statement, you should not do so until you have discussed the matter with counsel. Sometimes admitting to the most "innocent" fact can be to your detriment.
Immediate action is needed to insure the best possible defense, even if you do not know if you will be charged and even if you do not believe you have done anything wrong. If you have been questioned or if you have been told an investigator wants to speak with you, experienced legal counsel should be retained promptly.
