Sexual assault in the military

Don’t hear cases in military court

If Congress is serious about curbing rape in the military, it should remove all such cases from the military-justice system and place them in the civilian criminal court system [“End the culture of silence about sexual assaults in the military,” Opinion, May 17.

That would mitigate the victims’ fear of retaliation and provide appropriate consequences to perpetrators — namely, a felony conviction and prison instead of a slap-on-the-wrist dishonorable discharge.

James Flaherty, Seattle
