Crestview Military Arrest Attorney

If you have been accused of a crime and you are in the military, you are probably thinking about the following questions:

  1. Who can I trust to protect my civilian rights?
  2. Can my military career be saved?

My name is Tim Flaherty. Since 2001, I have been defending military members accused of crimes in Crestview and Okaloosa County. Criminal Defense is my only area of practice.

Give me a call at (850) 243-6097 if you are looking for a local attorney with experience defending military clients in Crestview. There is no charge for the first meeting, so there is no down side to calling me and finding out how I can help you.

As a military member, you defend all of us. I would be honored to defend you.

I understand that you are getting heat from both sides. You have the civilian court to worry about and your military career. Whether you are stationed here locally with 7th Group, Eglin AFB, Duke Field, or Hurlburt Field, I can help. If you are here on a TDY, call me. I can keep you from having to come back to Crestview for some of your court dates.

Crestview Charges that Can End Your Military Career

Any criminal charge can have significant impact on your military career, but the three listed below are charges that can lead to a separation from the military if you are convicted:

Usually, the military will not take action against a member until it is clear what is going to happen in civilian court, but sometimes, they will take action before the case is resolved. Some possible sanctions include:

  • Impose extra duty
  • Reduce your rank
  • Confine you to post
  • Submit a Letter of Reprimand (LOR)
  • Suspend deployment or PCS orders
  • Article 15
  • Court martial or separation board

You need an advocate that not only understands the civilian side, but also knows how to protect your military career. I will never forget that everything you have worked for is at stake. My responsibility is to save your career and I will do everything possible to make that happen.

If you are in the military and you have been arrested for a DUI, Domestic Violence, Sex Crime, or any crime in Crestview, call me 24/7 at (850) 243-6097.
