Gillibrand Announces GOP Support For Prosecution System For Military Sex Assaults

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky announced his support on Tuesday for legislation sponsored by Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York that would remove commanders from the process of deciding whether serious crimes, including sexual misconduct cases, go to trial. That judgment would rest instead with seasoned trial lawyers who have prosecutorial experience and hold the rank of colonel or above. The effort now has the support of more than 30 senators.
