A Senior Airman at Davis-Monthan originally faced two specifications of sexual assault and 11 specifications of assault consummated by battery. We got three assault charges dismissed before trial.
He had allegedly entered into a sham marriage with a foreign national after a night of drinking in Las Vegas. The marriage was predictably unstable. When he got the marriage annulled, she accused him of sexual assault and assault. Unfortunately, there were hundreds of pages of potentially incriminating text messages.
Mr. Conway skillfully cross-examined the alleged victim for over four hours. The Senior Airman was found not guilty of the sexual assault charges and three of the most serious assault charges - including a choking. He was found guilty of 5 out of 8 of the remaining more minor assault charges - probably because there were text messages from him and the alleged victim corroborating hitting, slapping, and restraint of wrists. He received a reduction in rank, 3 months confinement, and a bad conduct discharge. The result was far better than the deal the government offered.
