USDB Leavenworth
 
Not sure why there is not a current thread for military prisons. They are presently filling up fast with men, from E-1 to 0-6 convicted of sexual assault. At the present time, appeals are being filed for unlawful command influence. If there is ANYONE out there who is interested in this topic please reply.

Yes please. My husband just got 18 mo for this. And I KNOW he didn't do it. 'It' not even being that bad. It's ridiculous what they get confined for.

Hi. In our case the victim did not want to prosecute, and the conviction is causing huge harm to victim & family. Many omissions were made that could have resolved the issue in better ways. I would love to hear what's going on.

Hello. I'm here for research purposes in assisting a friend with a military appeal. What is UCI? Thank you.

My son, an Army Captain, was convicted at Ft. Hood last April of sexual assault because his wife accused him of rape in the midst of a very nasty divorce involving a custody battle. The marriage was only 18 months long and she accused him a year after they separated and two years after the so called incident took place. Civilian authorities wouldn't even bring charges because there was no case but the Army jumped right in. We were so sure this would be an acquittal because it was a he said/she said situation but we found out at the trial that was not the case. It became very obvious that everything she said was automatically believed and he was expected to prove his innocence rather than the other way around. The Army also provided her with an attorney, a victim's advocate, and of course the prosecutors were also on her side. My son had a military defense attorney and a civilian lawyer we paid for. I am still in a state of shock over the outcome and am worried about my son's mental health. He is so depressed.

Any advice you can give me would be much appreciated. For instance, did you have a civilian lawyer for the appeal? How long did the appeal take? My son's record of trial hasn't even been released yet and it's been 9 months!

Absolutely terrible.

Have you tried appealing to the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces (CAAF)?

Think about contacting your Congressional Representative or Senator also

Are are you talking about being falsely accused? This happens alot in the military. Once this happens no matter what rank you you. Your going to have to make aure you get a cilvian lawyer. Then make sure whatever recording you have of the conversation may happened. Who witnessed that would stand in their integrity and not lie just to save themslves. This also happens alot with sexual assualt falsy accused because someone got hurt or there was some disagreement and decided to make false statement. This is why sometimes they will tell soldiers to have a eecorder on them( phone when comes to conversations) so the other cant make up story.

Unfortunately, as I have found out since 1981, there is no such thing as justice in the military "justice" system. I have been out on parole for almost 24 years without a single blemish. US Probation has tried for 8 years to have me released from parole through AF Clemency and Parole Board. Not only did the AFCPB not grant clemency, they added a restitution clause to a Parole Agreement that has been in force since 1 Apr 93. (I get the irony of the date). I would not expect any type of rational fairness from the military.

For me, I'm going to fight them, legally and administratively, until I'm dead, or I see them removed from their porcelain towers.

They are rude (ask my PO), vulgar (ask my attorney), and the poorest examples of a government employee. Angry, no. Determined, you bet.

Great to hear! Looking forward to meeting them and getting to know all of you better.

My son is no longer at the USDB. He was released to the FBOP about 4 years ago (i've lost track of time now) and was just transferred from a USP in Kentucky to a USP in Louisiana. (FWIW- I do not like USPs!!) He has been recommended to go to a Residential Reintegration program (his terms) even though he's only been a the new place for a week or so. In researching, it appears that is the same program as the BOP's Residental Reentry Centers - which is a halfway house! Closest one is about an hour and a half from home. I haven't posted in a long, long time on PrisonTalk for various reasons but will be happy to answer any questions I can.
