ARMY CHAPLAIN AVOIDS COURT-MARTIAL ON
SEX ASSAULT CHARGES - ALLOWED TO RESIGN
COMMISSION "FOR GOOD OF THE SERVICE"
CPT ANTHONY MASTROMARINO WAS CHARGED
WITH "FORCIBLE SODOMY, INDECENT ASSAULT,
INDECENT EXPOSURE AND FRATERNIZATION"

GI's are shaking their heads in Heidelberg wondering how a V Corps chaplain was able to skate on charges that would have sent anyone else to court-martial and a long stretch in the Leavenworth DB.

CPT Anthony Mastromarino gets to resign his commission and leave the Army "for the good of the service." No other explanation for the "kid-glove treatment" was offered by an Army spokesperson.

We wonder what kind of deal was cut? There's more to this than meets the eye.

CHAPLAIN SAID TO HAVE COMMITTED SEX ASSAULTS
AGAINST BOTH MEN AND WOMEN

The 44 year-old chaplain, who entered the Army in 2004, had been charged with "forcible sodomy, indecent assault, indecent exposure and fraternization."

Investigators said the officer is alleged to have committed sexual assaults against both men and women.

The pervert padre allegedly attacked a male soldier in Vilseck last June and a few months later, followed that up with a sexual assault against a woman in Heidelberg, officials said.

In the first incident, Mastromarino was also charged with resisting arrest by a military policeman who arrived on the scene and tried to take the contentious clergyman into custody.

THE LAST CHAPLAIN CONVICTED ON SEX CHARGES
GOT FIVE YEARS IN SLAMMER

The captain had been assigned as a chaplain with the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, but later was shifted over to V Corps Headquarters and Headquarters Company.

Sources tell MilitaryCorruption.com this is the worst incident of chaplain misbehavior in Germany since CPT Gregory Arflack was busted for sex crimes a couple years ago. The Bamberg-based priest had been caught "preying" on young soldiers at an R&R center, was successfully court-martialed, and sent to prison for five years.

Soldiers are speculating that Mastromarino must have had an ace up his sleeve, and perhaps used it, to cut a "sweetheart deal" with prosecutors. A little knowledge about certain top-rankers goes a long way when you're trying to plea-bargain or make charges "go away."

[EDITOR'S NOTE: Is the chaplain in your unit engaging in misbehavior? If so, we want to hear from you. Army, Navy, Air Force or Marine Corps. Just shoot us a quick e-mail to staff@militarycorruption.com. Tell us the "who, what, where, when and how."

Remember, we're the fastest-growing military website in the world, with millions of HITS a month, so if we write up your errant preacher man, lots of folks are going to see it. MilitaryCorruption.com wants to emphasize the vast majority of military clergy are devoted men and women of God. It's the phonies and rats we're after.]
