RAF Lakenheath Civilian Military Criminal Defense Attorney

Representing the legal rights of military members accused of crimes while stationed in Lakenheath, England

Located in the eastern British county of Suffolk, Royal Air Force (RAF) Lakenheath is a Royal Air Force Station that is home to about 5,700 active-duty military members, as well as 2,000 U.S. and British civilians. The nearest towns are Lakenheath, Mildenhall, and Thetford, allowing individuals stationed at RAF Lakenheath ample opportunity to spend time off-base. Unfortunately, military members stationed at the base are occasionally accused of criminal misconduct, sometimes subjecting them to significant penalties, including incarceration and a dishonorable discharge.

Qualified to represent individuals accused of a number of criminal offenses

Members of the military, whether stationed domestically or abroad, are subject to the jurisdiction of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). As a body of law, the UCMJ differs in many important respects from the general laws that apply to the civilian population. These differences are both procedural and substantive, meaning that the court-martial environment is unique. In fact, there are criminal offenses defined in the UCMJ that have no civilian equivalent. As a result, it is important for people accused of military offenses to retain an attorney who has a thorough understanding of the military criminal justice system. The lawyers of Gagne, Scherer & Associates, LLC are qualified to represent individuals accused of any type of military criminal offense, including the following:
