"SEND ME YOUR NUDE PIX" WOMEN TESTIFY
SINCLAIR SAID - ARTICLE 32 HEARING AT FORT
BRAGG CONCLUDES - PROSECUTOR SPEAKS
OF JEFFREY SINCLAIR'S "ABHORRENT DESIRES"
DEFENSE ATTORNEY ARGUES FOR ARTICLE 15
© 2012 MilitaryCorruption.com
Now it's up to GEN Perry Wiggins to weigh in with his recommendation - do we go to court-martial or not?
The fate or 'horn-dog" flag officer, GEN Jeffrey Sinclair is now in the two-star's hands. We're betting the farm the former deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division will face court-martial on charges of "forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual contact and maltreatment of subordinates," to list just a few of the counts against him.
If found guilty, the 50 year-old brigadier general will spend the rest of his life behind bars. But, under military law, Sinclair could be convicted and yet not punished. So to speak. As we said, he could go to the DB for the rest of his natural life, or - as his defense team suggests, get an Article 15, a reprimand for adultery and fraternization, and be fined half a month's pay for two months.
MORE WOMEN TESTIFY - SENT SINCLAIR NUDE PIX
Since our last article (see related stories box below) two female officers testified that the sex-mad general asked and got from them nude photos.
But it is a 32 year-old female captain's tearful testimony that GEN Sinclair "forced" her to perform oral sex on him that could put him behind bars for good. Sinclair, his attorneys said, has taken and passed a polygraph test, adamantly denying he forced any female subordinate into sex.
MAJ Elizabeth Ramsey, one of the general's defense attorneys, is on top of her game. She blasted the 0-3 as a nut-case, vindictive ex-mistress who dreamed up the forced sex charge in order to get even with Sinclair for not dumping his wife and marrying her. Earlier testimony disclosed that the female officer had discovered erotic e-mails to the general from other women while going through his papers.
"Your lies are your fury," Ramsey slapped the accuser.
Several military members told the court the captain was extremely "flirtatious" and "over-stepped bounds" with superior officers. It is another case of SHE SAID - HE SAID folks, and it will be very interesting to see how all this finally shakes out.
General officers are almost never punished for sex dalliances, other than being forced to retire. Sinclair's fate remains hanging in mid-air.
