Assault in the military
Assault in the military is recognized in two differing degrees, as set forth in article 123. The first is simple assault and the second is aggravated assault. Both of these crimes are extremely serious and will go before a court-martial. Either of these offenses is something that the military frowns upon and strongly punishes. They’re not something to defend yourself against. You’ll need an experienced military criminal lawyer.
Many people are unaware of the concrete facts behind a simple assault. You don’t necessarily have to physically touch someone to assault them. It’s a threat or attempt to injure another party. Sometimes the victim may be struck and sometimes they may simply be threatened. These cases can sometimes be easier to defend, especially if no use of force was used in the end.
The second type of assault is aggravated assault which involves the use of a deadly weapon or other means which will cause injury or even death. If the victim is an officer, child under the age of 16, or law enforcement, the charges can be much more serious to defend.
Manslaughter and murder charges in the military
The military correctly takes charges of manslaughter and murder to be the most serious charges to be tried by court martial. Needless to say, a violent crime which ends the life of someone in the military or out is going to draw the most scrutiny among the many violent crimes to be tried by court martial. Articles 118 and 119 cover murder and manslaughter respectively.
Murder which is committed in the act of a burglary, sodomy, rape, robbery, or aggravated arson will sometimes result in more serious sentences than another type of murder charge. Needless to say, murder is the result of a very violent assault that was perpetrated with the intention of causing “great bodily harm.”
Manslaughter is a bit less intention and might be committed in a temporary fit of passion, without the initial intent to do great bodily harm. For example, negligence is a good way to think of a manslaughter charge. Someone who drinks and drive may cause a collision which takes someone else’s life but it was not their initial intention to cause “great bodily harm” to the other person. It happened because they were negligent. These cases are easier to defend than murder charges that insinuate a person intended to take the life of another human being. Few people – civilian or military personnel – understand the kind of malice it takes to WANT another human being’s life to end.
Our Defense For Violent Charges
The penalties for committing violent crimes in the military will justifiably be harsh and include a good many years of confinement. This is not the type of case to take on yourself.
