You may remember that I posted the video “Marine Commander Stuart Scheller on- Afghanistan Fail”
Well, they’ve not just sacked the man, they have locked him up:
Marine Corps officials have said there are no specific charges “preferred” or initiated against Scheller, but a spokesman for the service, Sam Stephenson, confirmed he is currently in pre-trial confinement while awaiting an Article 32 preliminary hearing.
That upcoming but yet-unscheduled hearing will consider whether charges of contempt toward officials, willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer, failure to obey lawful general orders or conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman should be recommended to his commander for action, Marine officials said.
According to the source, Scheller and his supporters are hoping for a deal prior to his Initial Review Officer (IRO) hearing — a hearing that must be held within seven days of being sent to the brig for pre-trial confinement. That is likely to occur next week.Military.com
