The Military's Changing Sexual Assault Landscape - How the Revisions to Article 120 Have Impacted the Military
Davis Younts will discuss the military’s response to the new Article 120 (sex assault statute) promulgated by the National Discrimination Authorization Act of 2012. The presentation will address how the sex assault statute has changed, how prosecutions changed to include investigations and the creation of new investigative entities such as the Office of Complex Investigations (OCI).
