Sad, but not unusual, from The False Rape Society.

My story started last summer when we got back from Iraq. My best friend and I went to a night club and long story short I had sex with a woman.

She accused me of raping her, because she was going to show up to work drunk and late.

United States v. Bond.

Before this court, Appellant has assigned the following errors:
The military judge erred when he denied the defense motion to dismiss Charges I and III for prior jeopardy.
An unsuspended bad-conduct discharge is an inappropriately severe punishment for the crimes of which Appellant was convicted.
Appellant’s Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights were denied when he was prohibited from recording the Article 32 investigation, and by the subsequent denial of his motion for a new Article 32 investigation.

We exercise our Article 66, UCMJ authority and set aside the findings and sentence.
