Army First Lieutenant avoids sex offense convictions and confinement

  A prior enlisted Army First Lieutenant was charged with multiple sex offenses, including allegations that he assaulted his young stepdaughter and his former wife.  That, coupled with multiple assault and other accusations, threatened the First Lieutenant with dozens of years on confinement, if convicted. At a trial by general court-martial, Team McLain achieved an acquittal on all the charges save one, which he himself had videotaped.  This meant that the First Lieutenant spent no time in confinement, and he was not convicted of any sex offense. The only adverse result was that he was dismissed from the rolls of Army officers pursuant to the sole punishment from his trial.
