US v. E-3, United States Marine Corps
April 12, 2018
Lance Corporal is under investigation for 8 months for allegedly sexually assaulting an underage girl. The Lance Corporal is removed from his platoon, placed in a disciplinary unit, and told that if convicted he would be a sex offender for the rest of his life. Moreover, his command refuses to provide him with any information about his case and leaves him guessing at how long he would be under investigation. Lance Corporal retains Mr. Robert Capovilla. Only ten (10) days after hiring Mr. Capovilla, all charges against the client are dropped and NCIS completely dismisses the investigation. Mr. Capovilla, along with the firm’s investigator obtain “smoking gun” evidence clearly proving that the complaining witness had informed the client that she was a 19-year old college girl who lived by herself in an apartment. Mr. Capovilla provides this information to NCIS and client is told that his command is not going to take any further action against him.
NO Sex Offender Registration, NO Federal Conviction, Client immediately returns back to duty.
