U.S. v. Air Force E-4 – Hanscom AFB, MA – (This case is a continuation of the Hanscom case below). Client was accused of rape, sex assault, adultery, and other crimes. The Government dropped charges on the eve of trial, gave client an Article 15 and then tried to separate client with an Other than Honorable at a board, assuming it would be easy after the Article 15 conviction. Mr. Waddington fought this case without a military lawyer in front of a board of 5 officers and 2 enlisted airmen. Client’s Commander, a LTC, testified that he wanted the client discharged with a negative discharge and did not want him in the unit. Of course, we fought back.
Result: The board RETAINED the airmen on Active Duty. NO DISCHARGE.
