US v. E-7
August 1, 2017
SFC, who is a Green Beret, is charged with 6 specifications of domestic violence. The complaining witness is the SFC’s ex-spouse who alleged that the SFC beat her up, choked her, dragged her by her hair through the house, and emotionally abused the children. Mr. Robert Capovilla serves as lead counsel on the case and cross-examines the lead investigator for over an hour pointing out inconsistency after inconsistency in the investigation. Moreover, Mr. Capovilla confronts the investigator on concluding that the SFC was guilty of domestic abuse before even finishing the investigation or speaking to the SFC. After 3 days of litigation, the military judge finds that the SFC was not guilty of any of the offense and the SFC obtains a full acquittal.
NOT GUILTY of ALL CHARGES and SPECIFICATIONS. No federal conviction. NO confinement.
