elow are real cases that Mr. Waddington has defended. Note: These are real case results from cases that Mr. Waddington has personally defended. However, all cases are different.

U.S. v. Air Force O-3 –Los Angeles Air Force Base, Los Angeles, CA – Our client was charged with using cocaine on several occasions and with lying on a Top Secret security clearance form. She faced 10 years in prison, a Federal Felony Drug Conviction, and a Dismissal. The prosecution had a 2 hour video of her alleged confession to OSI and a hand written OSI “confession.” OSI then dug up dozens of her friends and was able to bully a few officers into testifying against her. The prosecution refused any type of plea deal as well as a resignation with an Other Than Honorable Discharge. They forced us to trial. The Government was so confident that they would win, they were talking trash on the defense. This is not the first time that Mr. Waddington has taken on and shut down trash talkers. Left with no options and ready to fight, Mr. Waddington and his brilliant ADC co-counsel, Capt Stuart Saylor, took the fight to the Government and fought all charges in front of an officer jury. At the end of the trial, Mr. Waddington and Capt Saylor went out for drinks, our client and her father included.
