Army general facing sex charges back in court for hearing reported last week – “A U.S. Army general facing sexual assault charges is due back in court for a hearing on pre-trial motions.

A court martial for Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair is set to begin June 25 on charges that include forcible sodomy, indecent acts, violating orders and adultery.

A military judge on Tuesday ordered two U.S. Army generals to testify about whether they were pressured by top Pentagon officials to charge Sinclair with the alleged sexual assault of a female captain.

Military judge Col. James Pohl granted a pre-trial motion filed by Sinclair's defense team compelling testimony by Gen. Dan Allyn and Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Colt.

Food for thought:  This week marks the 5 year anniversary of my general courts-martial conviction for adultery.  Unlike General Sinclair, I was charged with conduct unbecoming an officer, which imposes a maximum 16 year prison sentence.  Yet I’m baffled as to why this particular married officer is not being charged with committing the same offense?   Oh yeah, I forget… “Rank, Race and Gender has its’ privilege in the U.S. military.”

So far, I remain the only “unmarried” military officer to be sentenced to prison for adultery, conduct unbecoming an officer and a few other minor offenses.  Meanwhile, my case should have already set a legal precedence to pursue charges against every military service member who’s ever been alleged or have plead guilty to having an adulterous relationship with someone other than their spouse.  Legal precedence established under military case law:  U.S. vs. Penland, May 2008.”

If Sinclair gets off and Petraeus and his mistress, Paula Broadwell continues to remain unscathed for their blatant omission to an adulterous affair, their scandal will only amplify the obvious fraud and injustices within our military justice system!
