Military Sex Crimes

Military Criminal Defense Lawyer

Allegations of a sex offense can easily ruin a promising career in the military, not to mention the serious consequences it can have in the realm of criminal penalties. Imprisonment, pay grade reduction, and dishonorable discharge are all possible repercussions of a sex crime conviction for a service member in the United States military.

Fortunately, service members have the right to legal counsel just as all Americans citizens do - civilians and military personnel alike. Rather than facing charges in a typical state criminal court, service members are subject to court-martial. Under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, specific actions are unlawful and serious penalties may be imposed upon a conviction. This includes sexual assault, rape, child pornography, sexual battery, and much more. What are considered sex crimes are very similar to those under state and federal law, but the legal process a military service member will face is different. Courts-martial operate off their own specific set of rules and procedures, and as such, it is essential that you work with an attorney experienced with these in particular.

Military Law Attorney Keith M. Gould

Keith M. Gould has over two decades of experience with military law and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Putting his experience and his zealous efforts to work for his clients, Keith M. Gould can provide you with the aggressive defense representation that you need to potentially avoid a conviction and maximum penalties.

Legal counsel is all the more important in the presence of sex crime allegations. The sensitive nature of these offenses can make it difficult to convey the defendant's side of the story at times, and the investigation, prosecution and sentencing of these cases are usually extremely harsh.

    “My name is Cynthia, and my family recently hired the Gould Law firm to assist us on serious allegation. Mr. Gould & his assistant, Ozzie Ahumada, have been extremely helpful. Ozzie gave us his personal cell phone and he has been there every step of the way helping get my family member out of jail. I would highly recommend the Mr. Gould and his staff for all your legal needs!!!”

    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”
