Last Marine to face prosecution in killings of 24 Iraqi civilians won’t serve any jail time

• Washington Post

Military judge Lt. Col. David Jones initially recommended the maximum sentence of three months for Wuterich, saying: “It’s difficult for the court to fathom negligent dereliction of duty worse than the facts in this case.”

But after opening an envelope to look at the terms of the plea agreement as is procedure in military court, Jones announced the deal prevented any jail time for the Marine.
