To be delivered to: Chuck Hagel, United States Secretary of Defense
US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel pledged to stop the estimated 19,000 military sexual assaults perpetrated every year. This epidemic of military sexual assault can and must be stopped. One of the few cases actually to reach a jury trial has been unilaterally thrown out by a lone general. As a former sexual assault prosecutor I am outraged by this travesty of justice which harms the victim and besmirches the millions who serve with honor.
