COL Henley, the Army’s chief trial judge who is presiding over the trial of Air Force Col Michael D. Murphy, has ruled that Col Murphy can’t be sentenced to any punishment. Judge Henley issued that ruling in response to the government’s refusal to provide the defense with access to classified information concerning Col Murphy’s service at the White House Military Office. The government has announced its intention to appeal.
Here’s a link to a publicly available Air Force Times article about the ruling. Today’s print version has a slightly longer article about the ruling.
