In a courtroom shocker today, military judge
Major Brian Kasperczyk dismissed one of four charges pending against Lt.
Andrew Grayson. The charge dismissed is obstructing justice. It
carried a maximum punishment of dismissal,
forfeiture of all pay and allowances, confinement for 5 years.
Three charges still stand against the lieutenant:
two charges of making a false official statement and one charge of
leave the Marine Corps.
Lt Grayson is one of three remaining defendants in
the Haditha case. The prosecution rested its case today and the
defense will open its case tomorrow.
