I’ve seen this happen here stateside, too. On a Navy ship stationed out of Norfolk circa 1992, there was an E-6 Fire Controlman who had sex with a woman that he met at a bar. She was married to another Navy guy and admitted that she wasn’t wearing her ring and didn’t tell the guy she was married. She went to on-base counseling because she felt guilty about the whole tryst and they pushed her into pursuing rape charges.
This poor dude was convicted and sentenced to 10 years. After her marriage fell apart and this guy had already done 18 months in prison, she admitted that she made the whole rape story up and the guy was freed. But he’d never get that year and a half of his life back. His career was completely trashed and his family was devastated. Wherever he goes, most people think of him as the rapist who got off on a technicality. I say Navy Family Services sucks.
“I say Navy Family Services sucks.”
(Snort.) Navy “screw the male on the basis of unsubstantiated accusations, more like.”
You are guilty, and good luck trying to prove your innocence.
I say Navy Family Services sucks.
That ain’t all about the Navy that sucks. I am sooooo glad I am done with my military career. It has gotten ridiculous.
