U.S. v. E-7, United States Army
January 28, 2019
Fort Benning, Georgia
Sergeant First Class (E-7) client is falsely accused by his wife of domestic assault and sexual assault. Sergeant First Class retains Mr. Capovilla before charges are preferred and Mr. Capovilla assigns its investigation team to the case. The investigator interviews several witnesses including the E-7’s children who were allegedly present during the alleged domestic violence and sexual assault. After a thorough investigation, Mr. Capovilla discovers that the complaining witness told her children that she was having an affair on the E-7 and that she, the complaining witness, knew that as a Soldier herself, she could get in big trouble for committing adultery. Through the investigation, Mr. Capovilla also determines that the children never once saw, heard, or ever believed that the E-7 sexually assaulted his wife at any point. The investigation uncovers how on at least one occasion, the complaining witness tells her oldest child that the E-7 had never hurt her or assaulted her and that she was just afraid of being punished and left alone.
CASE DISMISSED. Client KEEPS HIS RETIREMENT. Client’s retirement is salvaged and he will be able to retire with an Honorable Discharge.
