Pentagon Survey Finds a Surge in Sexual Assaults in the Ranks

Congress is going in the wrong direction on this issue. The problem is not LACK of prosecutions. A review of the data would show that the military is prosecuting way more sexual assaults than it was prior to 2012 when the first changes were made to the UCMJ. Commanding generals, out of fear of repercussions to their careers, are sending every sexual assault case to court-martial, regardless of the probability of conviction. Many have taken on the attitude of "Let a jury sort it out." I talked to a Army JAG major who is researching the issue, and he told me that the conviction rate is around 25% in sexual assault cases. It's not that cases aren't being sent to trial; it's that weak cases are being sent to trial. There aren't easy answers, but more prosecutions of weak cases isn't one of them. I think more focus should be on prevention, but that's difficult for Congress to quantify. More trials is much easier.

nytimes.com Troops in all branches of the military, and especially women, are suffering more unwanted sexual contacts and are less likely to report them, the survey found.
