US v. E-5

June 1, 2020

Fort Polk, LA

On June 1, 2020, Robert Capovilla helped represent a former 2nd Ranger Battalion member accused of entering a false marriage and referred to a general court martial at Fort Polk, Louisiana. At the start of the case, the client’s unit notified the client that they wanted a General Courts-Martial, 2 years confinement, and a punitive discharge. The Soldier hired Robert Capovilla and his con-counsel to fight his case and achieve a just result. After a thorough investigation of the facts, the witnesses and the case law regarding this unique issue, Robert Capovilla and his co-counsel were able to convince the Government to dismiss all charges against the Soldier.

Case Result

No courts-martial. No punitive discharge. No jail time. No federal conviction.
