Criticism of Afghanistan withdrawal leads to court-martial

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (AP) — An attorney for a former Marine battalion commander relieved of his duties after he made comments critical of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan says his client will plead guilty in a special court-martial. Lawyer Tim Parlatore is representing Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller. Parlatore told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his client will accept responsibility for his actions during the court-martial scheduled to begin Thursday at Camp Lejeune. Parlatore said that after Scheller pleads guilty, there will be a sentencing hearing that he expects will last two days.
