  • If a 15-6 is being conducted when should the Accused seek legal guidance?

    A 15-6 is being conducted and has been approximately 35 days. I have heard nothing from anyone regarding the matter. At what point will I be able to seek guidance on what steps to take to defend myself in the matter?

    William’s Answer

    If you are the subject of the investigation, you should consult counsel immediately. The TDS office will only give you "suspect rights" but you can retain private counsel.

    William’s Answer

    It depends on several factors: How long you have been in the service, whether you are "board eligible," how busy your command is, how busy the JAG office is, etc. No way to predict.

    William’s Answer

    It is always difficult to answer questions third hand, so perhaps your boyfriend can post his own question. But nothing in your post makes sense. There is no "minimum" payment, and he would not be required to "make up" his time. So either your boyfriend is misinformed, or he is not telling you the truth.

    William’s Answer

    Your attorney knows a lot more about the case than we do based on a one paragraph summary. If you have confidence in them, follow their lead, or you can feel free to present all of it to another lawyer for a second opinion.
