Being accused of a sexual misconduct crime in the military can not only change your future, it can also affect your reputation. While rape and sexual assault are serious crimes, you can be charged for other sexual misconduct crimes under Article 120c of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).
Article 120c of the UCMJ – Indecent Recording
According to Article 120c of the UCMJ, someone can be charged with indecent recording if:
- The person knowingly recorded the private area of another
- The recording took place without the other person’s consent
- The recording was made when the other person had a reasonable expectation of privacy
Possible Consequences of Conviction
If found guilty of indecent recording, the maximum punishment under Article 120c of the UCMJ includes forfeiture of all pay and allowances, dismissal or dishonorable discharge and confinement for five years. Although the consequences are serious, with an experienced attorney defending you, there is hope for your case.
