Military Penalty May Be Reduced After Major General Investigated
Officials at the Pentagon are submitting a proposal that would lower the maximum punishment for adultery. This policy change would decrease the number of prosecutions and give a less harsh discharge to those found guilty of adultery. It would still be a crime, but the code would dictate under what circumstances adultery would be prosecuted.The cases which did not disrupt the military unit would no longer be prosecuted.
The U.S. Army recently denied a Pentagon charge that it unfairly granted the retirement request of a general who was under investigation for having an affair with a subordinate's wife. What many questioned is if Maj. Gen. David Hale, a former NATO commander, was treated differently as a senior white male than other enlisted personnel who have been accused of adultery. Kelly Flinn, the first female B-52 pilot, accepted a general discharge after being faced with a court martial for adultery.
