Army head to decide rank of disgraced general

Washington (AP) - The secretary of the Army said he will have the final say on whether a disgraced brigadier general at the center of a sexual misconduct case retires at a lower rank with sharply reduced retirement pay.

John McHugh told a House committee Tuesday the case of Brigadier General Jeffrey A. Sinclair remained open a week after he was spared prison and sentenced to a reprimand and a $20,000 fine.

Sinclair had a three-year affair with a female captain who accused him of twice forcing her to perform oral sex on him. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges of adultery and conducting inappropriate relationships with two others by asking them for nude pictures and exchanging sexually explicit email.

House Democrats called the Sinclair sentence shocking.
