Fort Bragg hearing weighs evidence against US Army general on sex crimes, other charges

U.S. Army prosecutors are charging a general with sex crimes against five women, including four military subordinates and a civilian.

The first details of the charges filed in September emerged at a military justice hearing Monday for Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

Sinclair is charged with a long list of crimes including forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge.

Prosecutors alleged Monday in a hearing on evidence in the case that the crimes happened in places including Iraq, Afghanistan and Germany.

Sinclair's attorney asked for the charges to be thrown out, arguing that prosecutors had read confidential emails between the general and his defense.
