Army general faces court-martial in connection to series of sex charges

An Army general will face court-martial in connection with a series of sexual misconduct charges, but the Army is refusing to say Tuesday what crimes he is being charged with as he heads to his arraignment next month.

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair finished preliminary hearings last month. He faced charges that included forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, violating orders, engaging in inappropriate relationships and adultery. The allegations involved Sinclair's conduct with five women who were not his wife.

A 27-year Army veteran who served five combat tours, Sinclair could face life in prison if convicted on the most serious offenses.

Lt. Gen. Daniel B. Allyn, commander of the Army's 18th Airborne Corps, has referred the case to a general court-martial. The arraignment is set for Jan. 22.
