The CAAF daily journal for today is not updated, but knowing where he sits, we take CAAFLog’s observation that the AF TJAG has certified the following issues as accurate.
I. Whether the Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals erred in denying the United States’ request that the court order an affidavit from Appellee’s original military defense counsel.
II. Whether an "impression" left by civilian defense counsel that Appellee may not have to register as a sex offender amounted to an affirmative misrepresentation and led to Appellee receiving ineffective assistance of counsel.
The case is United States v. Rose, 67 M.J. 630 (A. F. Ct. Crim. App. 2009) a collateral consequences case. I’ve posted on the issue of collateral consequences and so has CAAFLog.
