We previously noted litigation in Canadian courts over whether the Canadian government could deport U.S. military deserters to face trial by court-martial (it can). The case of the first such deserter to be returned to the U.S. apparently went to a court-marital on Friday, producing a sentence that included 15 months of confinement and a dishonorable discharge. Here’s a link to the Globe & Mail‘s article about the case.

According to other media accounts, it seems that the military judge adjudged 30 months of confinement, but it was reduced to 15 months under a PTA.

If anyone has more information about the case, please let us know in the comments section.
