The Army is investigating Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair, who has been reassigned from Afghanistan back to Fort Bragg, officials said Friday.

Earlier this month, Sinclair was removed from his job as the 82nd Airborne Division's deputy commanding general for support in Afghanistan. He had been deputy commander since July 2010.

"This is a criminal investigation," said Ben Abel, a Fort Bragg spokesman.


The underlined part makes me believe this isn't a run-of-the-mill "booze and/or women" offense.

With 26, going on 27, years of service, he's still a made man when it comes to retirement. He'll be pulling a hair shy of $7K/month, and that's if he gets busted down.

Still, depending on the circumstances, that's a perfectly good career in the civilian sector that just got shot to hell.

His career as a civilian will be just fine as long as it is in politics- preferably as a democrat.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's only if you screw the people you make the policies for, no? Otherwise he'd be a crappy politician.

True, but he's trying. He's trying to accrue several glaring deficiencies before he makes his bid for office, that seems to be the way it's done.

I'll bet this story is chock full o' awesome.

"Awesome" it is.

http://news.yahoo.com/us-general-charged-adultery-other-sex-crimes-193011953.html

FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — 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.

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.

"Forced sex" would be rape, right? So....why not call it rape?

Then there was this interesting nugget I wasn't aware of:

It's rare for an Army general to face court martial. There have been only two cases in recent years.

Earlier this year, Army Brig. Gen. Roger Duff pleaded guilty to charges of conduct unbecoming an officer, wearing unauthorized awards or ribbons and making a false official statement. He was sentenced to two months confinement and dismissal from the military. Under a pre-trial agreement, only the dismissal may be imposed. The case is still pending, said Army spokesman George Wright.

Prior to that, Maj. Gen. David Hale pleaded guilty to seven counts of conduct unbecoming an officer and one count of making a false statement, also in connection with adultery. He was fined $10,000 and was ordered to retire at the reduced rank of brigadier general, Wright said.

SUH-WEEEEET! General Officers posing? Right on...must be freedom of speech or something since Stolen Valor doesn't exist....

Why the FUCK would you compromise yourself in the twilight of your illustrious career as an O7 just for a 30 second knee shaker? Regardless of how hot she is...

That Court Martial Board will have so much Brass on it, it will amount to the GDP of a small Nation..LOL

In your worst nightmare.....
Retirement.... if he is allowed to retire instead of resign in lieu of court martial (is that still in the UCMJ?). IF he is court-martial-ed, that can result in a federal felony conviction and the status as federal sexual offender. NOT something that adds to a resume....

One of the articles on this states that changes to the UCMJ were made this year. What changes?

One of the changes was to toss the ridiculous "sodomy" regulation.

Earlier story said he came to the Division from JSOC, awesome for both units.

I also find ZERO in regards to BG Duff's CM. Does anyone here remember seeing a story about him? Intereting that they could have CM'd a BG and not one news story appears about it?

He has probably been doing this, and getting away with it, for much of his career. He probably got caught up in the power and thought himself untouchable.

They shouldn't let him retire as a BG. They should do a lengthy and painful investigation, and make him retire at the highest grade in which he served honorably. If that's captain... oh well, shouldn't have been a shitbag officer.
