Wilkerson Follow-Up

A few days ago, I analyzed the decision of Air Force Lieutenant General Franklin to disapprove the findings of guilty in the sexual assault court-martial of Lieutenant Colonel James Wilkerson.

In the last few days, Senators grilled the top lawyers of each service about the current state of court-martial post-trial procedure, with apparent strong support for victim advocacy groups. A few members of congress even introduced (poorly crafted) bills to stop certain post-trial procedures.

Here is a bit from the opposing side of this argument, from a person who knows the Wilkerson case first-hand, his lawyer. Whereas I’ve never seen the record of trial or transcript, he lived through the event.
