US v. 0-2, Coast Guard
August 8, 2019
Junior officer is accused of sexually assaulting a female cadet from the Coast Guard Academy. Allegations state that our client sexually assaulted a female cadet while she was drunk and not willing to consent. Robert Capovilla files motions seeking to admit evidence that the accuser had a boyfriend at the time of the incident, fabricated her story to protect that relationship, and changed her story on numerous occasions. After a thorough investigation, Mr. Capovilla locates video evidence that the morning after the alleged assault, the accuser went fishing with our client, drank beer with our client, and spent the entire day with him. After the release of this evidence, the Government agreed to drop all sexual assault charges and withdraw those specifications.
Charges withdrawn and DISMISSED. No jailtime. No sex offender registration
