Keesler Air Force Base Civilian Military Criminal Defense Attorney

Helping military members accused of criminal misconduct at Keesler Air Force Base

Located in Biloxi, Mississippi, Keesler Air Force Base is home to 50,209 people, including 5,100 active duty military personnel. The base offers services such as child care, schools, youth service, medical services, and housing. As such, it operates much like a small city and is also only one hour east of New Orleans, Louisiana. Much like a city, Keesler AFB also sees its fair share of crime, some of which implicates members of our Armed Forces.

Military members who are facing allegations of criminal activity often have significantly more to lose than their civilian counterparts. Not only could they lose their freedom, but in many instances a conviction could also mean the premature end of their military career as well of the loss of any benefits that they have worked years, if not decades, to obtain. Fortunately, in many cases, the representation of an experienced military criminal defense lawyer can mitigate these and other consequences and may even be able to have an entire case acquitted, dismissed or dropped.

Representing service members accused of a variety of offenses

The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), the body of law that applies to members of the military, is significantly different from the laws that regulate civilian life. As a result, many experienced attorneys are not familiar with the way that military courts operate and may not be qualified to represent military members in criminal proceedings. The attorneys of Gagne, Scherer & Associates, LLC, however, are all former members of the Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps who have devoted their civilian careers to defending the rights of military members who are accused of crimes. Among the types of cases we routinely take include the following:
