Monty_Zoncolan: A close reading of the decision reveals he's ONLY exonerated on the charge of "conduct unbecoming an officer" so... fark it:

That one's even fair, as the conduct unbecoming was based almost entirely on his making a false official statement, which he was later exonerated on.  Investigators screwed the pooch, if they'd based the conduct charge more on "Dude, you're a farking dick with the use and abuse of women trapped in that life." they might not have even had to revisit this.

Not that the UCMJ doesn't allow things like convictions based on stuff you get exonerated for - that's totally fine under the rules technically - but it's a little raw even for a Court.  They usually try not to as invariably shiat does get leaked and it makes the Court look stupidpetty/other unsavory motivations.  This is pretty much a procedural slap on the wrist for the investigators, not so much a "Gosh we feel bad for the guy."  Court's sending a "Try not to get so lost in your own bullshiat you screw yourself, geniuses.  This isn't rubber stamp central." message to NCIS.

Yeah.

Often I have to wonder about people like this.  How in the ever living fark are you so stupid as to find yourself in such a situation?  Especially the desertion charge.  They told you to show up. You didn't, and you hadn't outprocessed from the military, so you really can't claim that your obligation is over.  Especially not an officer:  they don't serve for a fixed term of enlistment, they are commissioned and that obligates them until they retire, resign their commission, or are separated against their will.

Not sure why this has the "Giggity," tag. If true, then this guy was engaged in human trafficking.

Here's my problem:  the prosecution couldn't prove he made a false statement, AFTER lengthy interviews about his living situation.

In contrast to the petty officer they also mention facing the rape accusation, perhaps he really was trying to help the victims?  Seems like they could have gotten one of them to testify against him, otherwise.

Trafficking is horrible, but so is prosecutorial over reach, as we saw in the Kraft case, where the cops lied on their warrant application.
