FORT LEE, Va. (AP) — A soldier charged with beating an Iraqi detainee with a baseball bat and trying to cover it up received the lightest possible punishment Tuesday night after being convicted of lesser charges earlier in the day.
Mr. Waddington said Drake, who is from Laurel, will remain in the military, but hopes to be transferred from Fort Lee.
The defense rested its case Tuesday after putting only one witness on the stand — an Army physician whose testimony Mr. Waddington said supported claims of no medical evidence of abuse at the base.
