U.S. v. E-6, United States Air Force

May 2, 2018

Ramstein, Germany

The Government investigates this Tech Sergeant for over 6 months for allegedly sexually assaulting a fellow airman’s spouse. Tech Sergeant’s command had flagged and counseled him, informing him that they planned to Court-Martial him with offenses that could result in registering as a sex-offender.Tech Sergeant hires Mr. Robert Capovilla to represent him and to help him “prove that he was innocent” of all charges. Mr. Capovilla, along with the firm’s investigator, David Anegada, interview several witnesses who all inform Capovilla that the complaining witness has a reputation for lying.  Capovilla uncovers dozens of specific lies told by the complaining witness. One such lie included how the complaining witness told one of her friends that Capovilla’s client actually never assaulted her. With this information, Mr. Capovilla discusses his client’s case with OSI and the military prosecutor. The Government eventually agrees to drop the case in its entirety

Case Result

NO Court-Martial, NO Federal Conviction, and NO Sex Offender
