FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — A U.S. Army general charged with sexual misconduct plans to add civilian lawyers to his team at a hearing at Fort Bragg.
Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair is expected in court Thursday for hearing on pre-trial motions. Sinclair faces court martial on charges that include forcible sodomy, indecent acts, violating orders and adultery. He has thus far deferred entering a plea.
The Army has rebuffed public records requests from The Associated Press for copies of motions filed in the case by the prosecution or defense.
Sinclair's team plans to add attorneys from the firm Montgomery McCracken, based in New York and Philadelphia. They plan to ask military judge Col. James Pohl to delay decisions on the motions to allow the civilian attorneys to review the issues.
