Mickey and Robert breakdown the different stages of the courts-martial process from the investigation all the way through trial. We discuss the investigation, the Article 32 hearing, and the referral of charges process in detail to help you understand what you can expect if your case goes to trial. We also discuss when you can expect to be given discovery rights and what to do if charges are preferred against you. The process is foreign and often very scary to the service members who call our office. You might know how to breakdown a weapons system or track an enemy, but the legal process is a huge question mark to you. This is understandable. We hope this video is helpful and please feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any further questions about the process.
We all know the saying, “proof beyond a reasonable doubt.” We have heard it in movies, on TV shows, and in popular culture. But what does it actually mean? In this video Mickey and Robert discuss what beyond a reasonable means and how it’s important in your case. They also discuss the definition of preponderance of the evidence, which is the burden of proof that is applied during an administrative separation board. If you have questions about the burden of proof or if you are facing a courts-martial, call us today. We can help.
