FORMER JAG OFFICER SPEAKS OUT ON INJUSTICE
© 2017 MilitaryCorruption.com
For more than a quarter century, retired JAG Bill Cassara has maintained his honor and integrity. After a long career as a military attorney, the former lieutenant colonel in the Army Reserve dedicated his life to obtaining justice for those falsely and wrongfully accused.
Cassara has seen a lot in his legal career that still keeps him up some nights, but perhaps the case that shook him the most was the 2015 railroad job done on former JAG prosecutor, MAJ Erik Burris. We extensively covered that farce of a court-martial and urge our readers now to be sure and check out the related stories box at the bottom of this article. Don't read it right after a meal. You might lose your lunch.
Burris angered his superiors by testifying in favor of an Army captain who'd been targeted for destruction. The accused officer was an innocent man and a friend, so Burris, perhaps unwisely, did a "kamikaze mission" by taking the stand on his behalf. But even worse, when MAJ Burris swore under oath he felt "pressure" (i.e. "unlawful command influence") in prosecuting some of his own cases, that put a big target on his back.
He was speciously charged with marital "rape," and despite the prosecution team's own female investigative officer's view that the bitter ex-wife was "untruthful" and had "embellished" many of her charges, Burris was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
READ THIS LETTER
We have obtained a letter in support of Burris written by Cassara in July of 2015. It is so heartfelt and gut-wrenching, MilitaryCorruption.com has decided to publish it. If it embarrasses the brass hats who sent an innocent man to prison, so be it.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: -- Another example of gross injustice is the unfair conviction of Air Force Maj. Clarence Anderson. We have also covered his case with several stories and urge you to study them, along with those written about Erik Burris. We warn you, it will not be pleasant reading.]
