Marine's rape conviction overturned, sentence reduced.
Mr. Cassara represented a Marine Gunnery Sergeant on his court-martial appeal. The Marine was convicted of rape of a minor among other charges and sentenced to nearly 15 years confinement. During his court-martial appeal, Mr. Cassara argued that the military judge improperly instructed the panel on the law, and that the accused was denied a fair trial. The Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals agreed and reversed his court-martial conviction on the rape charge. The Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals reduced his sentence by two years. Mr. Cassara will know appeal further to the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.VALENTIN-201000683-UNPUB
