FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) -- An Army brigadier general has been charged with forcible sodomy and other offenses after being sent home from Afghanistan.
The Fayetteville Observer reported Wednesday that Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair faces possible courts martial, being charged with multiple violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Other charges include forced sex, pornography, violating an order, alcohol use, engaging in inappropriate relationships, misusing a government travel charge card, and conduct unbecoming an officer.
