Here is a link to the AP report on military judge Lt. Col. David Jones’ ruling in the court-martial against SSgt Frank Wuterich at Camp Pendleton “on a defense motion claiming there was unlawful command influence while [the convening authority] considered a court-martial for Staff Sgt. . . .Wuterich.” AP reports that, “The judge ruled there was no record of any ‘meaningful comment’ between the general and an aide who had investigated the case as a military lawyer.”
See our prior coverage of the motion here and here. No word when the next hearing is scheduled. For those living in a hole for the last four years, SSGt Wuterich is the lone remaining accused in the Haditha related courts-martial.
