The Tacoma News-Tribune, here, reports, here, on the SPC Michael Wagnon Art. 32 hearing. The hearing included some blistering cross examination of a key government witness in all of the 5th Stryker Brigade trials, SPC Jeremy Morlock.

Kris Sprague, a squad leader, said he initially stood up for Morlock but eventually concluded that what he told people was “60 percent truth, 40 percent (expletive).” Additional report, here, from the Tacoma News-Tribune on the pre-trial confinement hearings for various of the accuseds that have resulted in 2 being released pending trial.
