CAAF Oral Argument Schedule

Today, the CAAF released the following addition to the oral argument schedule.

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

9:00 a.m.: United States v. John R. Larson, No. 07-0263/AF

Counsel for Appellant: Capt Timothy M. Cox, USAF

Counsel for Appellee: Capt Jamie L. Mendelson, USAF

Case Summary: GCM conviction of attempted carnal knowledge, attempted indecent acts, misuse of a government computer, indecent language, and using a facility to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity. Granted issues are: whether the AFCCA erred in holding that Appellant had no reasonable expectation of privacy in his government computer despite the Court’s holding in United States v. Long, 64 M.J. 57 (C.A.A.F. 2006); and whether Appellant was denied the effective assistance of counsel when civilian counsel conceded Appellant’s guilt in his opening statement, during findings, and again in closing argument.
