ARMY LT COLONEL FACES COURT-MARTIAL
© 2016 MilitaryCorruption.com
For three decades, Patrick O'Mahoney has worn Army green. The Colorado man was counting on getting a fat pension check someday when, surprise, surprise, the CID came calling. It seems three years ago, the light colonel was serving in Afghanistan and allegedly got on the web to access child porn.
Investigators say the 0-5 used a computer at an air base in the southwestern part of the country to look up "very young teens undressed." Sick, yes. Also very stupid. What could he have been thinking? Wouldn't a field-grade officer of his experience know that surfing the Internet for stuff like that would get him caught?
We don't know why it took almost 33 months to charge him, but the IT folks finally found what O'Mahoney is said to have done, and now the colonel's career may go up in smoke. He is slated for court-martial at Fort Carson in May.
WAITING TO FIND OUT HIS FATE
He's been hit with one count of attempted possession of child pornography, disobeying an order, and conduct unbecoming an officer. In the meantime, while he waits to go to trial, the senior officer is riding a desk in the 4th Infantry Division's headquarters battalion.
O'Mahoney, an Army Reservist, was called back on active duty to face charges
"If he was a non-com or junior officer, he'd be hammered," a cynical sergeant first class told one of our Fort Carson CI's. "It'll be interesting to see if they go easy on him, or use this case to make an example."
Stay tuned, dear reader. We'll have our people in the courtroom. MilitaryCorruption.com will give you an update as soon as we have one.
