U.S. v. E-7
False Official Statement
Our client was an 18-year veteran of the United States Army and E-7 on the promotion list for E-8. He was a graduate of the Special Forces Qualification Course and had served nearly his entire career in special operations. He is the veteran of several employments and the recipient of several medals for bravery under fire. Despite all of his accomplishments, CID claimed that he lied to investigators back in 2011 for failing to reveal that he was convicted of a misdemeanor charge that was over 10 years old.
The E-7 was then notified of General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand for allegedly making a lying during his background investigation. With the help of the E-7, Attorney’s Capovilla and Williams were able to find the transcripts of the interview that the E-7 had with the investigator. Our client told the investigator during the interview about the conviction and revealed it to his chain of command. This vindicated the Soldier who is now set to retire with all of his retirement intact.
No courts-martial! No separation board! GOMOR filed locally. Retirement preserved.
