I was hoping to...

I was hoping to speak to someone regarding potential UCMJ action in the future

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been officially filed?

No, I am currently going through criminal court proceedings. The ADA is willing to drop all criminal charges for an alleged domestic violence incident (which I'm innocent of) but wants me to plead to a disorderly conduct charge, which is a violation/citation in the state where I'm stationed rather than a misdemeanor

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

Didn't really go into details except to say that I'm not guilty of the charges. and that they believe me I'm an Officer so I'm worried about a potential GOMOR and Separation Board

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just that Division JAG has essentially deferred any decision regarding an investigation until after the criminal proceedings are complete. My civilian court was adjourned until mid April so the consultation is $5?
