Sexual Offenses under Article 120 UCMJ

Military Defense Lawyer – Call (888) 490-0876!

If you have been accused a sex offense, or are facing sex offense charges under Article 120 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UMCJ), you need to retain a civilian criminal defense attorney who has a significant military justice background. As an active duty service member, if you are convicted of a sex offense in the military justice system, you may face severe punishments including a dishonorable discharge, decades in prison, and mandatory registration as a sex offender. When your future is on the line, do not waste any time in contacting McCormack & McCormack. Greg McCormack is a former Army JAG who has secured acquittals and favorable results for his clients facing military sex offense charges since his service as a prosecutor and defense attorney with the Army.

Why choose our court-martial defense attorney?

  • Proven track record defending military clients against sexual assault charges – numerous acquittals in fully contested jury trials
  • Former member of the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Corps
  • Previous service as a military prosecutor and defense counsel
  • Fully prepared to litigate the most difficult sex offense cases in front of military juries
  • Aggressive approach in trial and outstanding cross-examination skills
  • Highly experienced military paralegal support system

Sexual assault accusations can occur when a person engages in sexual conduct and the alleged victim alleges that he/she:

  • Is placed in fear for their health or safety
  • Incurs or is threatened with bodily harm
  • Does not consent to the sexual act
  • Cannot consent due to impairment of drugs or alcohol
  • Is asleep or unconscious when the act occurs

Powerful Defense Against Sex Offense Allegations

Allegations of rape or other sexual offenses are relatively simple to level, but can be enormously difficult to overcome. The military justice system often sides with the alleged victim, despite the fact that the accused is to be legally considered innocent until proven guilty.

Make no mistake, if you have been accused of a sex crime, your freedom and future is on the line. The current environment in the military, as well as in the civilian community towards sex offenses has reached the point where a person accused of a sex offense is effectively assumed to be guilty, rather than presumed to be innocent as the law requires. Over the past several years, significant changes in the Rules for Courts-Martial have been implicated to “protect” the rights of the alleged victim. Regrettably, those changes have significantly reduced the protections afforded to the person accused of the sex offense. The accusation alone can call literally destroy your character – your name and rank may appear in a military newspaper, and even in civilian media. If convicted of a sex offense, your career is destroyed and you may face a substantial time in prison. Even after completing any sentence imposed, you will face a life-time of sex offender registration.
