Soldier Gets Jail Time in Prisoner's Death

May 23, 2005|From Times Wire Reports

A military policeman has been sentenced to three months in prison after pleading guilty to assault and two counts of making a false statement in the 2002 beating death of a prisoner in Afghanistan.

Under a plea bargain, Army prosecutors will not pursue a maltreatment charge against Spc. Brian E. Cammack. He agreed to testify in other cases related to the deaths of two inmates at the Bagram Control Point.

Cammack was sentenced Friday during a court-martial at Ft. Bliss, Texas. He will be demoted to private, fined more than $3,200 and given a bad-conduct discharge.
