Sexual assault survivors say military justice must change
Victims say an independent authority, not unit commanders, should make decisions when prosecuting cases.
WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — Military sexual assault survivors say the military justice system must change. They said it's crucial that unit commanders should be removed from decision making in special victims cases."I was humiliated, ostracized, outcast and ridiculed from people of every rank," said Navy LCDR Erin Elliott. Today, the House Armed Services subcommittee on Military Personnel took up the idea of transferring the decision to try special victim cases from commanders to an independent prosecution authority.
