Marine Sgt Lawrence Hutchins Conviction Dropped In Iraq Murder

The military appeals court ruled Sgt Lawrence Hutchins was improperly held in solitary confinement for seven days without access to a lawyer.

Sgt Hutchins, the leader of a unit found to have killed a 52-year-old retired policeman, has served about half of an 11-year sentence.

His lawyer Maj Babu Kaza said he believed Sgt Hutchins would be freed.

"Sgt Hutchins and his family have suffered enough with this case, and it's time for this to be over," Maj Kaza said. "Enough is enough."

Shot in ditch

The case centres on the shooting death of retired Iraqi policeman Hashim Ibrahim Awad during a raid in Hamdaniya, near Baghdad, in April 2006.

Besides that, this should go over very well in Iraq.

And Detroit

And on and on and on...
