U.S. Soldier Gets No Jail Time for Killing Iraqi General
Posted on Jan 24, 2006
AP: FORT CARSON, Colo. - A military jury has recommended that an officer once facing up to life in prison for the interrogation death of an Iraqi general be given only a reprimand, a decision that drew applause from soldiers.
Initially charged with murder, Chief Warrant Officer Lewis Welshofer Jr. now faces no jail time, the forfeiture of $6,000 in salary and what amounts largely to a barracks restriction for 60 days. | | story
