As a result of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022, the President was tasked to create an enumerated offense of sexual harassment under UCMJ art. 134. The President issued an Executive Order 14062, January 26, 2022, making a number of changes to the Manual for Courts-Martial. Included within that EO was a specified offense of sexual harassment. If you are accused of sexual harassment as a court-martial charge under Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the prosecution has to prove the following elements beyond reasonable doubt. (1) That you knowingly made sexual advances, demands or requests for sexual favors, or knowingly engaged in other conduct of a sexual nature; (2) That such conduct was unwelcome (probably meaning the other person didn't like it); (3) That, under the circumstances, such conduct: (a) Would cause a reasonable person to believe, and a certain person did believe, that submission to such conduct would be made, either explicitly or implicitly, a term or condition of a person's job, pay, career, benefits, or entitlements;
(Here we thinks there is a mix of objective and subjective beliefs, based mainly on what the other person thinks or perceives. Normally, that means that other persons would in the same situation believe the acts and words are harassing--that's the objective part. And then, subjectively what does the other person think. Some litigation may come up about what this requirement actually means. Your military defense counsel should discuss this with you.)
(b) Would cause a reasonable person to believe, and a certain person did believe, that submission to, or rejection of, such conduct would be used as a basis for decisions affecting that person's job, pay, career, benefits, or entitlements; or
(c) That your conduct was so severe, repetitive, or pervasive that a reasonable person would perceive, and a certain person (the alleged victim) did perceive, an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment; and
(What this potentially means is that a minor one time act may not be enough for a court-martial conviction. That does not mean that the one time situation could not come up in an Article 15 case.)
(4) That, under the circumstances, your conduct was either:
(i) to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces;
(This most likely will come up in situations where the alleged victim is another servicemember, primarily from your unit or even a civilian employee of your unit.)
(ii) of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces; or
(This is most likely to come up if the alleged victim is a civilian who is not part of your unit or if it happens to a civilian out in the local community.)
(iii) to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces and of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.
While the prosecution of sexual harassment cases will continue, the question is whether the statute on which the crime is based will change.
If convicted, the punishment can include up to two years confinement, total forfeitures of pay, and a dishonorable discharge (or dismissal for officers).
