The Law Won

U.S. soldier sentenced to 110 years for Iraq murders

CHICAGO (Reuters) - A U.S. soldier convicted by a military court in the gang rape and murder of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and the killing of her family was sentenced to 110 years in prison on Saturday, the Army said.

Pvt. Jesse Spielman, 22, received a dishonourable discharge after being found guilty of four counts of murder, rape, conspiracy to commit rape and housebreaking with the intent to commit rape by a military court at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.

Meanwhile, at Confederate Yankee and Michelle Malkin's site, the wingnuts are going into overdrive to disprove Scott Beauchamp's anecdote that soldiers mocked a woman with a burned face. Because America's Heroes™ would never do anything like that.
