Did military law change the definition of sexual harassment?

Yes, it did. So in addition to there being regular old fashioned harassment as being defined in military and Army command policy, there also has been a substantive change to the UCMJ. So prior to this, Article 93 was where sexual harassment lived, and that’s the Article of the UCMJ, where it was charged.

Now sexual harassment has actually moved to being its own Article 134 offense. So yes, the law has changed. We have a lot of information about the technical differences and why we think those matter, and in some instances how we think that it actually improves the life of the client.

Jocelyn Stewart is a UCMJ court-martial attorney who specializes in defense of allegations of sexual assault for all branches of the military worldwide.
