LTC Lakin sitrep

Here is a new piece of information from wing nut daily:

Lieutenant Colonel Terrence Lakin, a distinguished Army flight surgeon, is "certain" to be convicted of disobeying orders, according to his lawyer, Neil Puckett.

Notice he does not apparently address the missing movement.  Maybe the “specific” movement issue is a winner?  See below.

"Based on the evidence available, his conviction is certain," Puckett told WND. "He has no affirmative defense for the offenses he committed."

Ha, ha.  Maybe what’s done is to lull the prosecution into a false sense of security.

"LTC Lakin is a doctor, not a lawyer," said Puckett. "He thought if he were to ask that question of the military courts, after being rebuffed in all other avenues, he’d get his answer. What he has discovered is that the military justice system cannot produce the answers to those questions. He could not have known, he was given inadequate legal advice. The military justice system is set up to help commanding officers maintain good order and discipline. It can’t make victims whole, it can only punish wrongdoers. He’s very disappointed in the system."

". . . LTC Lakin is left to speak for himself and defend himself. It’s up to him whether he wants to testify in his own defense, said Puckett.

Puckett would not reveal Lakin’s decision, or any other details of his defense plans. He predicted that Lakin would end up, at worst, convicted of two violations of orders, be dismissed from the service, and spend a year in confinement.
