Leahy and Hatley Charges Update

According to Stars and Stripes, here, Army Sgt. Michael P. Leahy Jr., has been charged with an additional count of conspiracy to commit premeditated murder (with 1st Sgt. John E. Hatley) and premeditated murder for a Jan. 2007 detainee shooting death near Baghdad separate from the four detainees they allegedly conspired to kill earlier this year, as we reported here.

UPDATE: A HQJMTC (I'll let you figure that out) press release, here, notes that both offenses occurred in 2007 and no charges have been preferred against 1stSgt Hatley for the Jan. 2007 death, yet. Corrections made above. It also says that the Art. 32 hearing for Sgt. Leahy is scheduled for November 12, at 9 a.m. at the Rose Barracks Courthouse in Vilseck, Germany.

So sorry, we have some nice aprting gifts. I was shocked to see th at we have a Joint MULTINATIONAL Training Command as part of 7th Army. Strangely the leadership of the Joint command is neither Joint nor Multinational, they are all USA officers.
