Fort Knox AWOL

GSA5If you are in AWOL or desertion status, there are likely two major thoughts running through you head: “What do I do?” and “Who can help me?”

As a military member stationed at Fort Knox, you need to a legal team on your side that understands the military justice system. Every AWOL and desertion case is different, each requiring unique attention to the circumstances surrounding the case.

We are unaware of any civilian military law firm that handles as many AWOL and desertion cases as we do, be it for servicemen stationed at Fort Knox or other Army bases around the country.

The Personnel Control Facility (PCF) at Fort Knox exists to process service members who are in deserter status because of AWOL.

AWOL is a serious military offense, and should be treated as such. If you are deemed a deserter by the military, a federal warrant is subsequently issued for your arrest. If a law enforcement officer stops you for any reason, you will be placed under arrest as a deserter.

AWOL may appear to be a fairly simple issue. However, there is likely to be a lot of confusion and debate on the government’s side about how your case should be handled. In some circumstances, we see servicemen or servicewomen at Fort Knox charged with desertion when they should have been charged AWOL. While not all military officials understand the differences between these charges, our civilian military attorneys do. We have the resources and know-how to get the military to listen to your side of the story, without exposing you to harsh interrogations and cross-examinations.

If you are in AWOL status after spending time away from Fort Knox, contact the military trial lawyers at Gagne, Scherer & Associates, PLLC today. We will stand on your side, using our experience as former JAG attorneys to fight you AWOL status.
