U.S. v. E-4, United States Army

July 13, 2018

Fort Bliss, Texas

Specialist is under investigation for fleeing from a police officer, resisting arrest, possession of narcotics, and driving under the influence. The misconduct allegedly takes place off-post and the Specialist is told by his chain of command that if the charges were true, they planned on court-martialing. Specialist retains Mr. Robert Capovilla to represent him. Mr. Capovilla and the firm’s investigator interviewed the arresting police officer and uncovered a number of details not previously provided to JAG. After several months of negotiations, several hours of research, and dozens of calls with the client, Capovilla convinced the Soldier’s chain of command not to take any action against him for the alleged misconduct. The client is informed that the charges would be dropped and that his flag would be lifted so that he could continue his career

Case Result

NO Court-Martial, NO Nonjudicial Punishment, NO Separation Board, and NO Federal Convictions. Client was recently restored to his previous position within the unit.
