Result: NOT GUILTY OF ALL SEX CHARGES, Guilty of violating no contact order Sentence: NO jail time, NO sex offender registration, NO discharge, 60 days restriction, forfeiture of pay, reduction to E-1 Client was accused of sexually assaulting the wife of a fellow Airman on two occasions. Waddington was hired after the case was docketed for trial.
We were able to negotiate a plea deal that saved client from a Federal Conviction and Sex Offender registration. Case was sent to a SCM so long as client admitted to assault.
Client was charged with raping a fellow soldier and committing an aggravated sexual assault (and assault and battery) on another female soldier.
Luckily, we had the two polygraphs and the result from the Article 32.In the end, the rape charges were dropped and our client pled guilty to adultery (the alleged victim was married, not our client) and conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman.Note: These are real case results from cases that Mr.Waddington personally handled over the past couple of years. A success in one case does not guarantee success in another similar case.The expert told the jury that when victims lie repeatedly, that means they are telling the truth.
When a victim changes major details of her story, that means she is telling the truth.
Because NCIS wants convictions, regardless of the the truth, they ignored key evidence and failed to collect evidence that proved our client’s innocence. The NCIS agent was exposed as incompetent and corrupt.
The Article 32 officer determined that our client was innocent of rape. He then launched a personal vendetta against our client, contacted his civilian employer and tried to get our client fired by claiming he was a rapist.
A Summary Court does not give the client a criminal record. Basically, the female officer cheated on her husband with our client and lied to cover up the affair.
Sentence: NO sex offender registration, NO Federal conviction, NO discharge, 30 days of confinement, reduction to E-1 A married female Marine officer accused our client of rape. The alleged victim had a history of lying and adultery. Waddington and Capt David Segraves aggressively fought the allegations at the Article 32.
We do not guarantee or promise a certain outcome, to do so violates the Rules of Professional Responsibility.
