U.S. v. E-1, United States Marine Corps
June 13, 2018
Private is accused of the sexual assault of another Marine at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Private is also accused of violating an order not to drink alcohol. Private had already been ordered separated for prior misconduct. Following these new allegations, Private is placed in pretrial confinement right exactly on his EAS date. The Government then prefers charges for sexual assault under Article 120 and the orders violation to a Special Court-Martial. The charges are later referred to trial. However, following extensive discovery and expert witness demands, and after Freeburg aggressively challenges the prosecution on various fronts, the Government instead offers the client an administrative separation instead of proceeding to a court-martial trial.
