Crestview Military Arrest Lawyer
If you are a military member facing criminal charges of any kind, you likely have a lot more than just criminal penalties weighing on your mind. In addition to any fines, jail time, and other penalties you could face if convicted, you are also likely facing very significant effects on your military career, including a possible separation from the military and the loss of your livelihood. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to protect your rights, your freedoms, and your future.
My name is Tim Flaherty and for more than 16 years I have been helping military members in Okaloosa County protect their careers when facing even the most serious criminal charges. The entire team at Flaherty Defense Firm is dedicated to helping individuals in Crestview and throughout the area do everything possible to avoid the most serious civil and military consequences of a criminal conviction, and we know what it takes to help you through this uncertain time.
Consequences of a Criminal Conviction for Military Members
In most cases, the military will not engage in any disciplinary measures against service members until after a civilian court has ruled on criminal charges, making it essential for you to present a strong case in civilian court. However, just because your command hasn’t issued any penalties doesn’t mean you aren’t facing very serious military consequences, including but not limited to:
- A reduction in your military rank
- Imposition of extra duties
- Confinement to your military post
- A Letter of Reprimand (LOR)
- Article 15
- Suspension of PCS orders
- Suspension of deployment
- Separation board
- Court martial
We know that the stakes for you are incredibly high, and we take our responsibility as defense attorneys extremely seriously. When your military career and livelihood are on the line, you cannot afford to leave your future in the hands of an over-worked and inexperienced public defender. You need an attorney who has specific experience working with members of the military, and that is exactly what our team at Flaherty Defense Firm can provide.
