I was not present when my dog died from a heat stroke (he was 2 months old) and the military members that wrote a statement added things that weren't true such as finding dog feces 2 days after my dog died in the house. My wife is also being charged because she was present when it happen. She is 35 week pregnant and we have 2 kids already. Now they are threatening to take our kids away. Due to all this stress my wife has become severally depress with thoughts of suicide and is having complications due to her stress level. My Squadron continues to do "moral checks". which they go through every room in the house and using any little thing as evidences. We were doing laundry and they wrote a statement saying we had a trail of clothes everywhere when in reality we can piles in the laundry room color coated so we could was them. Because of the lies they wrote on statement my reputation is ruin and my family feels unsafe where we live. What are some legal steps that we can take to beat this case?
