SHARP INVESTIGATION occurred on one of my soldiers and he is not flagged. It is a bullshit investigation that comes from another NCO that accused him of sexual harassment for a verbal statement that he made to someone else in the army and never to her. How long do these investigations last? What are the chances he will get in trouble? He admitted to the statement and he made it to another soldier but never to her and she only reported because the one he made it to is her boyfriend and they are being investigated for fraternization. My soldier has never been in trouble and he is solid in performance. The investigation began end of October.
How long do these investigations take? It has been closed but it is at legal for the last three weeks? Also he was never flagged for the investigation and never given a counseling for it but it is still under investigation. Should he have a flag put in place for this?

Two things:

1. Read SFC (Join to see) comment.
2. Let the investigation take its course.

SHARP cases are taken seriously so the investigation will be very throughout. At the end the investigating office will recommend either sustains or unsustained.

We have all had the SHARP briefings within the Army. Many times over. It is stated in those briefings that someone doesn't have to be the intended recipient of comments to file a complaint. If someone within ear shot hears the comment(s), and are offended, then they can file a complaint. As for the investigation length, that is determined by the Investigating Officer. And then determined by Legal. If I were to guess, I would say the end results should be handed out to the Soldier fairly soon.

SGT (Join to see) in today’s world, it is best to avoid saying anything that could be taken the wrong way. Why did he feel compelled to say it?

Im not sure why he said it but it was just a verbal comment to someone else.

SGT (Join to see) - It takes as long as it takes. Some take longer. Some don't.
