JURIST -- Marine sergeant faces Article 32 hearing for Hamdania killing
A military judge is reviewing unspecified documentary evidence and testimony of Hutchins' squad members to determine if he will order a general court-martialJAG Hunter here: This report is wrong.
To repeat from an earlier posting, Article 32 hearing officers do not order military personnel to courts-martial.
They make recommendations to the convening authority (who represents the commander in chief -- chief executive).
There is only one person in the U.S. who is authorized to punish American military men. Just one.
Here endth the lesson.
