Charges of sexual misconduct are taken very seriously in the military. If you are charged with committing a sexual offense, you could face devastating consequences. However, with the right defense team on your side, there is hope for even the most difficult cases.
Article 120c – Indecent Viewing
There are a few sexual misconduct crimes covered under Article 120c of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Indecent viewing is one of them. This offense occurs when a service member knowingly and wrongfully views the private area of another person. The indecent viewing must also have occurred without consent and under circumstances that the person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy. There can be a lot of blurred lines when it comes to convicting someone of indecent viewing, so it is extremely important that you are working with an experienced attorney who knows how to handle cases like these.
Possible Consequences of Conviction
If convicted of indecent viewing under Article 120c of the UCMJ, the maximum punishment you could face include:
- Forfeiture of all pay and allowances
- Confinement for one year
- Dismissal or dishonorable discharge
