FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) - First details of sex crimes and other charges against an Army general are expected from a hearing on the evidence in the case.
Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair's military judicial hearing is scheduled Monday at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Officials say it's expected to last at least two days.
The Army has kept details secret so far in the rare criminal case against a high-ranking officer. That is different from other high-profile cases where Army prosecutors were quick to release charging documents.
The general was deputy commander in charge of logistics and support for the 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan before being abruptly relieved.
Sinclair is charged with crimes that include forcible sodomy, wrongful sexual conduct, engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card.
