The Victim

The role of the alleged victim in a military court-martial proceeding

Overview of the victim – an important witness, but never the only witness.

The victim is a primary source of information about any crime. In non-stranger sexual assaults, it is common that only two people were present for the sexual activity. The victim is a walking crime scene and eyewitness. Eliciting every possible detail from the victim, and forming a government case to communicate the events and make them believable requires sensitivity, careful interviewing, and planning.
