VIRTUAL FULL ACQUITTAL, NO Confinement, NO Discharge, VERY Minimal Punishment.
October 28, 2015, Fort Campbell, Kentucky. U.S. v. E-4. Highly-Decorated Corporal is charged with multiple specifications of maltreatment and assault of one of the Soldiers in his squad. This Soldier accuses him of kicking him during corrective training, communicating a threat and pointing both loaded and unloaded weapons at him at multiple times. Other witnesses testified against the Corporal claiming that he did maltreat and assault the Soldier. Corporal retains Mr. Gapasin. At trial before an Officer Panel, Mr. Gapasin aggressively cross-examines the accuser as well as the other witnesses and exposes multiple inconsistencies and a lack of corroboration. Mr. Gapasin reveals how members in the squad could not handle the corrective training and high expectations of this Corporal. The Officer Panel virtually acquits the Corporal and only finds that his corrective training went too far on one occasion. RESULT: VIRTUAL FULL ACQUITTAL, NO Confinement, NO Discharge, VERY Minimal Punishment.
