Avoided court-martial for rape negotiating a plea to a lesser offense
An NCO at Fort Jackson, SC, faced the potential of rape charges after the Article 32 (b) hearing the Investigating Officer recommended a charge of rape. He knew he needed an experienced court martial attorney and contacted Mr. Cassara. Mr. Cassara convinced the command and prosecutors not to bring rape charges but to allow the NCO to plead guilty to those charges he initially admitted to, illegal association. Decision allows the NCO to avoid a rape prosecution and potential sexual offender registration.
