Military Criminal Defense Lawyer
Domestic violence is an unfortunate crime that occurs all too often in the United States, both in civilian society and in military bases and combat zones throughout the world when one person seeks to acquire or maintain power over another individual through the use of physical, emotional or mental violence. Domestic violence generally indicates a pattern of behavior, the victims of such a crime may suffer for years before stepping forward to find freedom from their oppressor.
When domestic violence occurs in a civilian environment, offenders often face fines and jail or prison time when convicted. Members of the military may also face these same penalties in a criminal trial, but may additionally be the subject of command investigations as well as boards of inquiry hearings which will seek to determine the level of guilt in a subject, and impose appropriate penalties with regard to demotion, court martial, dishonorable discharge and more. This can be especially disastrous for those servicemen and women who have not yet become vested in their retirement, or those who have been punished without actually committing the act itself.
