Army general fined, reprimanded in sex case

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

FORT BRAGG, NC (AP) — An army general avoided jail time and was reprimanded and fined a total of $20,000 for inappropriate relationships with three subordinates in a closely watched court case.

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair smiled and hugged his two lawyers in the courtroom Thursday morning after the judge’s sentencing.

The final sentence could not exceed terms in a sealed agreement between defense lawyers and military attorneys. The agreement was unsealed Thursday and said Sinclair could have served no more than 18 months in jail.

Sinclair had been accused of sexual assault during his affair with one subordinate, but charges were dropped as part of a plea deal. He pleaded guilty to several charges including adultery – a crime in the military.

His case comes as the military works to curb sexual misconduct and Congress considers military justice reforms aimed at helping assault victims.

FIRST ON 3 UPDATE: Body found on BHI identified as missing Southport man

Thursday, March 20th, 2014

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — An autopsy has determined a body found on Bald Head Island is a missing Southport man.

Southport Police Chief Jerry Dove says dental records confirmed the body is Adam Muhammad. The 22-year-old went missing in mid February. WWAY was first to report the discovery of the body Monday morning.

Earlier this morning Dove, whose department is handling the investigation, said a medical examiner confirmed during an autopsy yesterday in Greenville that the body was a black male. Dove said dental records led the ME to believe it was Muhammad, but there was still some uncertainty. Dove says Muhammad had not been to the dentist since 2005, so the medical examiner wanted to talk to the dentist who treated him about a wisdom tooth that may have come in since. The ME also took DNA and blood samples for comparison, Dove said.

It’s still unclear how Muhammad died. Dove says there are no signs of trauma like gunshot or knife wounds. At this point the cause of death is listed as undetermined and pending, Dove said.
