JAG Officer Reprimanded

An Arkansas Committee on Professional Conduct panel issued a consent reprimand to an Army captain  with the Judge Advocate General's Corps who self-reported that the Department of the Army had charged him with adultery, dereliction of duty and a false official statement. An Army investigation had found he had engaged in sexual relations with a legal assistance client and made knowingly false statements.  He had been suspended from practice in the military courts, even as a civilian lawyer, and his separation from the service has been recommended.

The decision does not conclude that adultery violates the Arkansas disciplinary rules. (Mike Frisch)
