Geoff Ziezulewicz, A top Navy recruiter touched a colleague’s breast without her consent. He wasn’t charged, Navy Times:
"Not charging such a case is “an absolute knife in the back to good order and discipline,” said Don Christensen, a retired Air Force colonel and one-time chief prosecutor for the service who now leads Protect Our Defenders, a nonprofit that advocates for change in how the military handles sexual assault.
“The more senior you are, the higher standards you are held to,” Christensen told Navy Times after reviewing the NCIS investigation. “If you have a crisis of sexual assault and sexual harassment in your institution, and you have someone of a senior rank committing sexual harassment and assault and you have the evidence to prove that … that’s a pretty easy call.”
“It fuels the belief that is too often a reality, that there are different punishments for junior enlisted,” he said."
