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

A 27-year Army veteran who served five combat tours, Gen. 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.
