"US Army General Charged With Sex Crimes

Sep 26, 2012

Associated Press| by Michael Biesecker and Lolita C. Baldor

FORT BRAGG, N.C. - An Army brigadier general who served five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan has been charged with forcible sodomy, multiple counts of adultery and having inappropriate relationships with several female subordinates, two U.S. defense officials said Wednesday.

The defense officials spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to provide details on the case.

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair faces possible courts martial on charges that include forced sex, wrongful sexual conduct, violating an order, possessing pornography and alcohol while deployed, and misusing a government travel charge card and filing fraudulent claims"

I cried this morning when I read this article.

http://news.yahoo.com/details-misbehavior-emerge-sentencing-brigadier-general-jeffrey-sinclair-144245194.html;_ylt=AwrTWfxzTCxTeVcAheDQtDMD

I haven't been following the case; I avoid the news about this kind of topic. But this was on the radio this morning, so I looked it up.

I don't know what happened, but I heard the words "plea bargain" and "demanded photographs". I can't believe the man is innocent.

I do believe that this will make it harder and far less likely that victims will speak up. I feel like any progress that has been made in victims advocacy has been lost and we are back to the "good old days".

There are no words to express my outrage or the abysmal depth of my sense of loss. We are abandoned.

If he had been a PFC they would have put him in jail for 10 years. Now the bastard gets to retire and keep his pension. He can now get a job in the defense industry and give his wife a STD. There is just no way in the world the military can give justice to its members if they wear stars. A 20 grand fine and a reprimand in his record is a joke. He was allowed to retire instead of being given some LTH discharge and loss of pension. The sexual criminals are not locked up in jail but are running the military.

John's right. This dirt bag makes me want to puke. He'll probably be appointed as a cabinet minister.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
