We of course followed with interest the decision to prosecute at court-martial MG Grazioplene--a retired Army officer. He appeared in civilian clothes for the various hearings because he had not been recalled to active duty.  The CAAF decision in United States v. Mangahas caused some rethinking.
Grazioplene eventually pleaded guilty, to serious sex offenses which he committed over a significant period of time, in a Commonwealth of Virginia court. I do think that if he was convicted at court-martial his sentence could well have been much longer than what he was adjudged in the civilian case.
The defense secretary has reduced a retired Army major general to the rank of second lieutenant after he pleaded guilty last year in a Virginia court to sexually assaulting his daughter while in uniform.
So reports Army Times.
 Here there is a photo of him in a not-green suit leaving the TDS Office at Fort Belvoir. True, the courtroom is in the same building.
