As more details come out about the General Sinclair case the more it is looking like he is going to be acquitted of the sexual assault charges:
Defense lawyers for a U.S. Army general facing sexual assault charges say digital evidence collected from his accuser’s old smartphone shows she lied under oath.
The young female captain at the heart of the government’s case against Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair testified Tuesday during an evidentiary hearing at Fort Bragg.
Sinclair, 51, has pleaded not guilty to eight criminal charges including forcible sodomy, indecent acts, violating orders and conduct unbecoming an officer. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison at a court-martial scheduled to begin March 3. [Army Times]
You can read more at the link, but she lied under oath now and may have been manipulating evidence. These recent revelations come on top of the recent facts that she did not even want to have Sinclair prosecuted in the first place and told a friend that the relationship was consensual, but cooperated with investigators to avoid being charged herself. Sinclair has a very strong jilted lover case and from what I read so far it will be tough to convict him on the sexual assault charges. However, like we saw with the LTC Wilkerson case he was convicted with no evidence other than by the word of someone who was drunk and he even had his wife defending him. So anything is possible in these cases. He will definitely get convicted on the adultery and other charges they can stick on him. So his career is done, but it will be interesting to see if he keeps his retirement like another high ranking officer COL Johnson did?
The next question will be if he is acquitted of sexual assault is if the special interests will claim that his buddies hooked him up and that the UCMJ needs to be changed?
