Terrorism in the U.S. Military
Some of the most grievous offenses that a military service member can commit are those that endanger the United States government itself. One such offense is terrorism. Although most people automatically think of foreign terrorists attacking our country and our people, terrorism is not a threat that is committed by external sources only. Any citizen or member of the U.S. military is just as capable of committing terrorism as is a soldier from an enemy country.
The USA PATRIOT Act
The "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act" (USA PATRIOT Act) was enacted in the year 2001 in order to provide better means of fighting terrorism in and against the United States. When a service member is accused of violating this act, the consequences can be severe. Any crime that is committed as a direct threat to the government is treason and is punished at the highest level, which means that you could face life in prison or the death penalty if wrongfully convicted for false accusations of terrorism. Don't hesitate another moment to retain the skilled representation of a military criminal attorney if you have been charged with terrorism in the service.
