Additional Information

Retired Federal Agent who ended his 35-year law enforcement career supervising investigations of physical and sexual assaults of vulnerable citizens with the District of Columbia’s Office of Inspector General (OIG). Investigated high-profile sexual assault investigations including the 1991 U.S. Navy Tailhook scandal as a Special Agent with the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS), which led to a career of investigating sexual assaults and child pornography crimes. Experienced in testifying in federal and state trials. Unwanted sexual contact in the military is rising, according to a recent survey of military personnel. Steve is a Subject Matter Expert in how the military conducts sexual assault complaints, and what policies and procedures military investigators follow. More incidents and fewer reports of sexual abuse are the takeaways from DOD’s 2022 annual sexual assault prevention and response report. Military criminal investigations are complex in nature and involve first and foremost the safety and security of the victim and medical attention including a Sexual Assault Nurse Exam (SANE), securing the crime scene, collection of any forensic evidence at both the crime scene and the hospital along with interviews of victims and/or witnesses that Steve is very familiar with.
