During the afternoon panel of the SASC military personnel subcommittee dealing with sexual assault in the military, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) reviewed the number of instances in which CAs have set aside findings of guilty. (It starts at 41:33 of this link.) In the United States Marine Corps from 2010-2012, there were 1,768 SPCM and GCM cases resulting in convictions and in only 7 cases (0.4%) did the CA disapprove the findings of guilty, none in a sexual assault case. In the Air Force, over the last 5 years, convening authorities set aside findings in 40 cases out of 3,713 cases (1.1%) – 5 in sexual assault cases. The Navy doesn’t have a system for tracking convening authorities’ Article 60 dispositions, but a survey found only 1 instance of a CA setting aside findings; that was in a sexual assault case. In the Army, since 2008, out of 4,603 cases with convictions, the convening authority set aside the findings in 68 (1.48%), none of which were sexual assault cases. In the Coast Guard, out of more than 200 cases convened, the convening authority set aside a finding of guilty to at least 1 specification in 3 cases.
