Doctor’s GOMOR Moved From Performance Fiche to Restricted Fiche

We have been representing an Army doctor who received a GOMOR for allegedly falsifying medical records. As anyone who does military justice knows, commands frequently use GOMORs when they simply don’t have enough evidence to give someone an Article 15 or a Court-Martial. This was such a case. In spite of the GOMOR the doctor …

Court-Martial conviction overturned on appeal

I recently represented a Coast Guardsman who was convicted of sexual abuse of a child and a general disorder for making a statement to a child that was of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.  Two days prior to the court-martial, the alleged minor victim completely changed his story from the conduct alleged …

Former Airman’s Discharge Upgraded

General Discharge upgraded to Honorable. We have been representing a former Airman who was kicked out for a “personality disorder.” The military frequently uses this “catch all” for those they want to be rid of, especially those with mental health issues, including PTSD. As our client did not have six years active duty, he was …

Reversal of Court-Martial Conviction Upheld on Appeal

I recently posted how the Army Court of Criminal Appeals had reversed my client’s child sexual abuse conviction in U.S. v. Swift.  In a rare move, the government appealed that decision to the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.  Yesterday, the CAAF agreed with us, and denied the government’s appeal.  This means my client …

Air Force Captain's Child Molestation Charges Reversed on Appeal

I recently represented an Air Force captain, who was convicted of sexually molesting his two step daughters.  Unfortunately, this is a scenario all too often where allegations are brought against a service member in the midst of a divorce.  My client has steadfastly maintained his innocence, and there was no physical evidence to link him …

Sexual Assault Charges Thrown Out on Appeal

I previously reported on how I successfully had a client’s conviction for rape of a child thrown out on appeal by the Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals.  As I reported in that post, my client still had several convictions on his record.   Now, two more of those convictions have been overturned on appeal, this …

Mr. Cassara recently represented a soldier who was convicted of two separate rapes and sentenced to seven years confinement and a dishonorable discharge.
