Only God and Dan Wilson know for sure if he criminally “touched” a little girl’s genitalia. There are no witnesses. The “victim’s” parents, who were recent acquaintances of Col. Wilson and his wife, testified at his court-martial their daughter came to them with the complaint.
Even in the witch-hunt atmosphere, the JAG didn’t try and claim the accused put his fingers inside the little girl’s private parts. And other claims, including wildly contradictory accounts of “sexual assault” by a grown woman, failed to impress the jury – a jury that knew the politicians and career officers wanted at least a few pounds of flesh from the beefy colonel to show how politically-correct they are.
There was no chance whatsoever that Wilson would be acquitted.on all charges. He HAD to be found “guilty” of something or fire-breathing Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and her crowd would howl like a pack of wolves.
We have endeavored to cover this case with fairness and complete objectivity. Anyone who has read us over the past 17 years we’ve been online, know that MilitaryCorruption.com has no sympathy for officers – unless there is a chance they – like former JAG prosecutor MAJ Erik Burris – have been railroaded.
BOOZING BROUGHT THIS ON HIMSELF
Col. Wilson helped bring about his own destruction. A crude, rude drunk, his mouth got him in trouble and fired from an overseas assignment. The heavy boozing should have been a warning signal for his command to get him help. Where was his family in all this? But Wilson learned the hard way, when you play with fire, you always get burned.
It is entirely possible that a soused Dan Wilson bounced the alleged “victim” on his knee. But if he was this terrible sex criminal, why – according to the jury – was he guilty of “touching” her genitals and yet never “inserted” a finger where it wasn’t supposed to go? That just doesn’t add up.
Was the “touching” a fraction of a second, or was it sustained groping? And what are the real motives of the “victim’s” parents – a couple only recently known to the colonel and his wife – who were befriended by them? Is there a civil lawsuit coming down the line? Is this really about M-O-N-E-Y?
No officer, especially a colonel, gets a free pass from us. But the e-mails calling for Wilson’s castration, execution, obliteration, are way over the top. The real truth lies somewhere between what the prosecution would have us believe and what actually happened.
