We had closely followed the Green capital MEJA prosecution in Kentucky, which resulted in a discharged soldier being convited of conspiracy, rape, and multiple murders for crimes he committed inMahmoudiya, Iraq while he was on active duty. The jury did not unanimously agree to a death sentence, as is required in federal (and military) practice.  Phil Cave’s Court-Marital Trial Practice blog links to this AP article reporting that yesterday, Green was senetnced to five consecutive life sentences for his crimes.

    They should have made his life sentences concurrent, at least then he would serve more than one.
