Then what? The contract that Long signed is what is binding. Civillian law is irrelevant in this case. Like I said...it isn't even in Long's legal arsenal to use that. He cannot sue. He joined the military, made it past his initial 180 days...he was a soldier. I can bet that when he gets his Bad Conduct Discharge the matter will be closed and he will have no recourse in any court, civillian or military.
Not unless the country is under martial law. I don't think your grasping what it means if the contract is not valid.
If there is a dispute if the contract is valid, then the civil court will rule (as long as the government obeys the rules) If he really is in the military.
The recruiter simply saying "I didn't do it" doesn't end it there. Its no different than any case.
If I smash your window and then show up and say "I didn't do it" does it end there? No.
So, the recruiter says "I didn't do it" , the Judge (after hearing all testimony and evidence) weighs the balance of probabilities.
If he says "No, it isn't valid"
Then Corey Glass isn't military, and the army can kiss his *** like any other useless punk with no life ambition.
Will that happen? Of course not. The way the law is set up and the way its selectively enforced are different. Women are supposed to get the same sentancing as men for violent crimes, but we can look statistically and see they don't.
Corey Glass should have a very descent defense, but he could have concrete proof he never even signed the contract and that the recruiter threatened to kill his mother and he still wouldn't get a trial.
Hence, he's in Canada. So American law isn't really too scary, and if we should kick him out or not, in my mind, is about whether he's done anything wrong or not.
And if he has fulfilled his contract and had it breached, then in my mind he owes nothing to the US government, and they really owe him something. He did more than he signed up for, even if its less than you want, too bad, he didn't agree to that.
So let him stay.
Im a man of law above else, and after looking into California civil law, he hasn't done anything wrong.
If he'd come from the New York National Guard Id tell him to get his *** back to face punishment.
