Hold Proven Military Sex Offenders Accountable sign now

Sex offenders are a small population within the U.S. military, but cause long-lasting damage to the victims they attack and the reputation of the military. Nonetheless, the Department of Defense has done little to ensure that offenders are brought to justice through trial and conviction. Hundreds of sex offenders involved in substantiated cases each year continue to serve or are released into the civilian population without being convicted and added to the sex offender registry. The systemic problems that allow so many offenders to escape justice have yet to be addressed.

Sex offense is known to be a chronic issue for most offenders, who have offended in the past and will continue to offend until they are caught and stopped. Solving the problem is as simple as ensuring that the small numbers of offenders serving in the military are brought to justice. Instead, more and more military victims from all branches of service have come forward with accounts of how they suffered for reporting the crime while the offender got off scot-free.

This problem has raged on unabated for decades, and it is time that something be done. The first step in solving the problem is understanding exactly what is causing it, beginning with a thorough Congressional investigation that includes all service branches. This should include reviews of past sexual assault cases to determine what caused them to fail. It should also include an inquiry into cases that were proven but not sent to trial. As many victims as possible should be offered opportunities to discuss how they were treated surrounding their allegations. Sex offenders have no place in the military. It is time to determine what allows a small handful of criminals to cause such widespread damage as their victims suffer for coming forward.
