From the folks that brought you the Art. 31(b)log, here is a 9-page primer on the new Art. 120. For anyone that has Lexis-Nexis, just login and it should be free. I think that leaves our baby blue brethren out in the cold, no? From the Lexis-Nexis website, here’s a description of the primer:
Congress defines military sexual crimes in Article 120 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). 10 U.S.C.S. § 920 et.seq. Effective on June 28, 2012, the newest version of military sexual crimes more successfully shifts the focus to the offender, but is not without its problems. This Emerging issues Analysis by Jim Clark, professor of Criminal Law at The Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School, the US Army’s ABA-accredited legal center in Charlottesville, Va., explores the changes effected by the new, new Article 120.
Sadly, I didn’t know there was a civilian professor at the Army JAG School.
