Update on Special Forces murder case

I spoke with the Attorney for MSG Troy Anderson today, Maj. Lance Daniels (background here). I asked him about the charging document which was signed by an E-7 paralegal whose only familiarity with the case was having read a summary and was unaware that two investigations had cleared them. He agreed that it was a point of contention and said he had requested the Convening Authority to have the case dismissed based on a lack of valid charges and made the same request during the Art. 32 hearing. He said we could expect an answer on the charges in a couple of weeks as they would likely wait until they had a full transcript.
