General Rules in the Lt. Behenna Case
Hello everyone,

It has been a while since the last update, but we have been waiting on the General to review Michael's clemency packet. Although our hope in the General granting favorable action was not great, we felt Michael had such a compelling case that relief was just around the corner. Unfortunately the sad news came that the General had basically passed the buck. The Staff Judge Advocate (the Generals legal counsel and the Prosecutors boss) recommended to the General that Michael serve the full 25 years. This recommendation came even in light of the trial judges recommendation that Michael's sentence be something less than 18 years. The General ultimately reduced Michael's sentence to 20 years, which is a real disappointment and inconsistent with other soldier's convicted of similar crimes.

However, the good news is that we can finally move towards his first appeal. We have had so many great legal minds offer their assistance to ensure the appeal is compelling. Michael has said he feels good about the appeal and wishes he did not have to wait the many months it will take until the Court hears the case. But he is doing well, and has several outstanding soldiers who are now housed in his unit. These soldiers are helping one another make sense of what has happened in their cases. Prior to their convictions of killing terrorists, all of these soldiers had sterling careers. There is a startling trend of US soldiers having been pushed to their limits, and the Army releasing known terrorists, and these soldiers feeling they must take matters into their own hands to protect their soldiers. Currently the prisoner's of this war are known as the "Leavenworth Ten". You will hear more about these heroes as the public begins to know their stories.

We are about 10 months to a year away from the Army Court of Appeals. It is important to keep Michael's story alive and his spirits lifted. We appreciate everything you have done to help Michael and our family during the past year. We respectfully ask that you don't slow down now. Members of Congress know about Michael's case and will continue to support him at the Pentagon if you continue to let them know the importance of this issue. The local media has been fantastic and we are on the verge of the National media picking up the story. Please do not pass up a chance to tell Michael's story, or pass on this message or his DEFENDMICHAEL.COM web site . If you have not signed his petition, or told others about it, you can access the petition at:

Peace,

Scott & Vicki ( Michael's parents)
