This week at the ACCA: The Army CCA will hear oral argument in two cases this week, both on Thursday, February 5, 2015:
United States v. Moellering, No. 20130516
Whether the military judge failed to instruct the panel on the element of lack of consent for Specifications 1 and 2 of Charge I, thereby lessening the Government’s burden of proof for Charge I.
United States v. Doshier, No. 20120691
I. Whether the members failed to follow the military judge’s instructions to make special findings regarding the Specification of Charge IV and found Appellant guilty without determining whether the Government proved each alleged image met the elements of possession of child pornography beyond a reasonable doubt?
II. Whether defense counsel’s performance was deficient, in particular counsel’s failure to investigate, advise, and prepare the accused to testify or remain silent, and whether this deficiency resulted in prejudice rising to a reasonable probability that, but for counsel’s deficient performance, the result of the trial would have been different?
