Here's a link to the Fayetteville Observer's article on Staff Sergeant Martinez's acquittal. And here's a link to the Lower Hudson Journal News's account. But that account includes at least one blunder. Contrary to the Journal News's report, Martinez was not "the first U.S. soldier to be tried for fragging since the beginning of the war in Iraq." Sergeant Hasan Akbar is on military death row at Leavenworth for a fragging incident at the outset of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.
