A Marine combat veteran from Iraq has been jailed after refusing to testify against his former squad leader before a federal grand jury.
Although granted immunity, Sgt. Jermaine A. Nelson, 26, refused to testify against former Marine Sgt. Jose Luis Nazario in a case involving the alleged killing of prisoners during the battle for Fallouja in late 2004. Nelson's lawyer, Joseph Low, said Friday that his client will not testify against Nazario because Nazario saved his life numerous times.
