NOT GUILTY of ALL Charges and Specifications.
February 22, 2015, U.S. v. E-7, Fort Benning, Georgia. Sergeant First Class is accused of the theft of a sensitive military weapon from Marine Special Forces (MARSOC) in Afghanistan. SFC is also accused of pawning the weapon in the United States. Mr. Freeberg represents the SFC and immediately recognizes problems with the Government's case. Seeing holes in the Government's story, Freeburg prepares a creative defense. He avoids opening evidentiary doors and opportunities for the Government to enter in valuable evidence. In order to do this, Freeberg limits the defense case. He instead argues how the prosecution failed to satisfy its high burden of proof and overcome the presumption of innocence. RESULT: NOT GUILTY of ALL Charges and Specifications.
