Spc. Sivits Gets Max

Spc Jeremy Sivits, described as a Father and Little League Coach, pleaded guilty in a Baghdad Court-Martial. He received a sentence of one year in a military confinement facility, reduction in rank to Private and a bad-conduct discharge. The maximum sentence for this type of court-martial.

Sivits stated he knew, without doubt the treatment the detainees were receiving was wrong, but indicated he had heard MI was condoning this sort of treatment.

Was his sentence just?
