FULL ACQUITTAL, NO Federal Drug Conviction, NO Confinement, NO Discharge.
November 13, 2015, Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois. U.S. v. O-4. Major (O-4) is accused of wrongfully and knowingly ingesting THC, or marijuana, after testing positive in a urinalysis. Major asserts this was not done knowingly and retains Mr. Gapasin. Just prior to trial, the Government agrees to dismiss the charge and specification that could have led to a felony drug conviction. Case proceeds to a General Officer (“GO”) Article 15 and Gapasin serves as client's spokesperson at the Article 15 hearing. Three-Star General presides over hearing and finds insufficient evidence to find Gapasin's client guilty of wrongfully and knowingly ingesting THC. RESULT: FULL ACQUITTAL, NO Federal Drug Conviction, NO Confinement, NO Discharge.
