JASON WILLIAMS v. STATE OF MARYLAND, et al

Civil litigation — Sex offender registry — Military conviction

In August of 2014, Jason J. Williams, appellant, was a 32-year-old Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, stationed in Hawaii. He and his best friend on the island, Marine Lance Corporal Zeyquan M. Gardner, offered a ride to a pair of 18-year-old college freshmen women. After Williams and Gardner provided the women hard liquor to drink for several hours, they took them to a hotel, where Gardner engaged in sexual intercourse with one of the women (hereinafter “Ms. B.”) at a point when she was not capable of consenting to sex due to her impairment by alcohol. Both men were subsequently convicted of numerous offenses by the United States Navy-Marine Corps Trial Judiciary.
