Recent Cases

Client was an Air Force Major and pilot who was charged with eight different specifications for choking, striking, and threatening to kill his wife over a five-year period. Client was facing a maximum sentence of thirty-four years and a Dismissal (Dishonorable Discharge) from the USAF. Client hired Attorney Karns, who, after the Art. 32 hearing, persuaded Client’s command to decline a court-martial. Client instead accepted non-judicial punishment (NJP), Reprimand, and forfeiture of half pay for two months. Subsequent to the NJP, the command initiated an administrative separation action against Client and sought an Other Than Honorable Discharge. At the Separation Board, Attorney Karns presented Client’s outstanding service record and the expert testimony of Client’s therapist who testified that Client suffered from PTSD due to a deployment. The Board discharged Client, but awarded him a General Discharge Under Honorable Conditions.

Airman First Class was charged with on multiple occasions wrongfully distributing and using ecstasy and marijuana and allowing another Airman to us his vehicle to transport illegal drugs onto a USAF installation. Client’s case was connected to those of several codefendants, all of whom were court-martialed and received Bad Conduct Discharges (BCD). Client’s case was also referred to a general court-martial, but Mr. Karns was able to negotiate a pretrial agreement with the prosecution which allowed Client to be retained in the USAF via the Return to Duty Program and avoid confinement and a BCD.
