US v. E-5

May 25, 2020

Fort Campbell, KY

The soldier hired Robert Capovilla after he was accused of being derelict in the performance of his duties while down range in Syria. The case was covered by national media including the Military Times and the Army Times. In short, the SGT was accused of contributing to the death of one of his Soldiers who was negligently shot in the neck and killed. When the SGT first hired Mr. Capovilla the Government had preferred charges to a General Courts-Martial and wanted jail time, a reduction in rank, and a punitive discharge. Mr. Capovilla immediately began to interview witnesses, review the evidence, and conduct case law research. In the end, the Army agreed to dismiss charges against the SGT and all charges were dropped

Case Result

No courts-martial. No conviction. No criminal record. No jail time
