April 3, 2018, U.S. v. E-5, United States Air Force, Robins AFB, Warner Robins, Georgia. Staff Sergeant in Reserves tests positive for barbiturates following a voluntary urinalysis in support of her officer commissioning package. Staff Sergeant claims she never wrongfully used prescription medication. She asserts that she innocently ingested the substance when provided the medication from her sister-in-law for a migraine headache. Air Force proceeds with separation. Staff Sergeant retains Mr. Gapasin to represent her at the board. Gapasin aggressively argues the position of innocent ingestion and harps on the Government's argument at closing when the Recorder argues, “we don't know for sure whether she knew what she took.” Gapasin also argues that the seven (7) retention criteria were satisfied in light of several character letters Gapasin obtains for his client, to include one from a Vice-Wing Commander who was her former supervisor. RESULT: Fully Retained.
