General charged with sodomy

An Army brigadier general who served five combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan has been charged with forcible sodomy, multiple counts of adultery and having inappropriate relationships with several female subordinates, two U.S. defense officials said Wednesday. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to provide details on the case.

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair faces possible courts-martial. Sinclair, who served as deputy commander in charge of logistics and support for the 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan, was sent home in May because of the allegations, the officials said. The 82nd is based at Ft. Bragg, N.C.

Sinclair was informed of the charges Monday but has not been placed under arrest. The next step will be an Article 32 investigation, including a preliminary hearing to determine whether the matter should go to trial. No date has been set.
