The Washington Post reported yesterday that the Army agreed to drop the most serious charges against Brigadier General Jeffrey A. Sinclair in his court-martial if he admits that he “maltreated” a junior officer.
A female captain on Sinclair’s staff in Iraq and Afghanistan said she carried on an affair, but there were holes in her story.
Last week, in a highly unusual move, the judge dismissed the jury to allow Sinclair to negotiate his deal.
