Customer Question
My wife is under investigation...
My wife is under investigation for fraudulent misconduct with leave forms. Right now it is her word and her OPS SGT's word against a LT in the company. Her OPS SGT has spoken to the investigating officer and told him that at no time has my wife the company 1SG has ever pulled a leave form or asked him or anyone in his office to pull a leave form. The investigator told him it does not matter what he just told him because he is not the one under investigation.

My wife is being investigated for supposedly telling a LT that she would not get charged leave. My wife and her OPS SGT both made statements that stated they did not tell the LT that. After the OPS SGT restated that neither he nor my wife told her she would that she would not be charged leave but in fact if the commander did not give her a pass it would be charged as leave. The investigating officer told the OPS SGT that it does not matter what he told the LT because he is not under investigation. According to the JAG documents I have found online a he said she said is not enough evidence to say that she is a fault.

Are you asking if "he said/she said" is sufficient to begin an investigation?
