Bob McCarty Weekly Recap: Sept. 20-26, 2015

I’m a little behind in offering this weekly recap, because I’ve been busy with two important wrongful-prosecution cases that deserve your attention. That said, I hope you appreciate this weekly recap for Sept. 20-26.

Continuing my coverage of the unfair prosecution of Army Maj. Christian “Kit” Martin, I began the week with a piece published Sunday, Sept. 20, under the headline, Reportedly Decapitated in Logging Accident Almost 19 Years Ago, Man Ready to Testify on Behalf of Accused Army Officer.

On Tuesday, Sept. 22, I offered my first piece about Michael Silva, a former Air Force basic military training instructor who’s seeking to have his sexual assault conviction overturned. It appears under the headline,  Clemency Letter Reveals Much About Pentagon’s Eagerness to Convict Military Men on False Sexual Assault Allegations.

After publishing a brief update about Major Martin’s case — Army Soldier-Aviator’s Trial Date Pushed Back to December — on Wednesday, Sept. 23, I shared another piece about Silva’s case under the headline, Is Accuser’s Facebook Update Riddled With Inaccuracies?

On Saturday Sept. 26, I shared three more articles about Major Martin’s case following a two-day hearing at Fort Campbell, Ky. During that hearing, a military judge heard arguments on the subject of alleged unlawful command influence and prosecutorial misconduct. The headlines for those pieces appear below:

Officer’s Accuser Described as ‘Untruthful Since Childhood’;

Local Prosecutor Says Fort Campbell Counterparts Tried to Pressure Her to Drop Charge Against Army Officer’s Accuser; and

Prosecutors Accused of Misconduct, Breach in Controversial Sexual Assault Case Against Army Officer at Fort Campbell;

Also on Saturday, I shared one more article about Silva’s case under the headline, Social Media Postings Reveal Much About ‘Psychic Medium’ Who Accused AF Basic Training Instructor of Sexual Assault.
