I recently posted a question about the parents of an under

I recently posted a question about the parents of an under aged girl who stated she was 19 but I was informed later in the conversation that she was 16. I never asked for any sexual favors and I told her immediately that I was not gonna risk talking to her. I go my answer that I was ok in that situation, but what I forgot to add was that her father wanted me to send him money as a way to settle this outside of court and not go to the Anchorage police department. He then informed me that it was for "custody cancelling fees" I have no idea what he means by that but since I know I'm in the clear. How do I get him off me and stop threating me with the fee charges? What do I say to him? By the way I'm in the Army

I am on the receiving end of a Relief for Cause OER. Short

I am on the receiving end of a Relief for Cause OER.Short version. A bunch of my Soldiers made up allegations against me and my First Sergeant for harassment, sexual harassment, and mental retardation to protect their friend who got caught stealing a TV from my office while deployed to Afghanistan.The overzealous investigator proved all manner of allegations against me to be true even though he proved things such as medical conditions, bad childhood, and that my predecessor were all bad. My rater even told me on two occasions that the facts didn't matter and I would be punished no matter what I did. Furthermore, they withheld all evidence used against me and only gave me some summarized memorandums with no supporting evidence to tell me I was guilty of all manner of crazy things. I was even found to be a toxic leader because I enforced AR 670-1 by telling people to get their hands out of their pockets.I believe I can show evidence of harassment, discrimination, HIPAA violation and failure to follow army regulations.Also, I was relieved a week after my rating period ended and that was put on my OER in violation of AR 623-3.The evidence against me was a joke. No victims, no witnesses, no dates, no times, no locations. All evidence was rumor and hearsay.I filed 2 congressional and the Army simply stonewalled and rebuffed them. They had my rater reply to one of them even though I had leveled allegations against her. They refused to investigate and told me to file an OER appeal.I need some guidance because I need to file an OER appeal (received OER about 18 months ago), but I believe my chain of command should be held responsible for breaking the law. I currently have a Presidential Inquiry ongoing, but the Army is stonewalling on that too. Any advice?
