News like this could hardly have come at a worse time. The GEN Jeff Sinclair court-martial is in full-swing at Fort Bragg, the major media are paying attention, and now the top Army prosecutor for sexual assault cases has been suspended.

A female lawyer who worked for LTC Joseph "Jay" Morse alleges he tried to "kiss and grope" her at an Army conference back in 2011. No explanation of why the accuser waited so long to make her accusation.

Morse has been removed from his job, and echoes of the mess when an Air Force top sex crimes prosecutor and light colonel was charged (see related stories box below) are sounding across the Pentagon parking lot.

Stars & Stripes reports the alleged incident with the Army officer took place in a hotel room during a military sex assault conference in Alexandria, Va.

Morse, who was commissioned an officer in 1993, supervises the Army's nearly two dozen "special victims" prosecutors. He has been a member of the JAG Corps since 2001.
