Military Members Charged with Sexual Assault

The crime of sexual assault is taken just as seriously in the military as it is in the civilian world. If you are convicted of a crime considered sexual assault, such as rape or carnal knowledge, you may face the end of your military career, a dishonorable discharge, registration as a sex offender, imprisonment, or worse. Take steps to level the playing field against a military prosecution team that will be relentless in pursuing a guilty verdict against you. Contact a Korea court martial defense lawyer who knows how to fight against baseless sex crime charges.

The Uniform Code of Military Justice defines rape as engaging in sexual intercourse without the consent of the other party. It defines carnal knowledge as engaging in sexual intercourse with an individual under 16 years of age. The penalties for rape can include incarceration or the death penalty, in accordance with a decision by a court martial. Carnal knowledge can be penalized with forfeiture of pay and allowances, 20 years of confinement, or dishonorable discharge. If the carnal knowledge offense involves a child under the age of 12, the penalties can be increased to include confinement for life, without the possibility of parole.
