A U.S. ARMY SPECIAL FORCES SOLDIER'S FIGHT FOR MILITARY JUSTICE
http://threedaysinaugust.com/ ^ | October 16, 2011 | SeekTheTruth

Posted on 10/16/2011 6:22:52 PM PDT by seekthetruth

"Three Days In August" by Bob McCarty

U.S. Army Special Forces Sgt.1st Class Kelly A. Stewart admitted to having a one-night stand with a 28-year-old German woman the night of Aug. 22, 2008. She did, too. Both knew sex was part of the plan when they left the discotheque near Stuttgart. Two months later, however, her story changed and the highly-decorated combat veteran found himself facing rape and kidnapping charges.

During court-martial proceedings one year later, Stewart faced an Army court-martial panel comprised of soldiers who had recently returned from a 16-month deployment with the Army attorney serving as Stewart’s lead prosecutor.

Despite a lack of both physical evidence and eyewitnesses to the alleged crimes, it took only three days for the panel to find Stewart guilty of numerous offenses — including aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping, forcible sodomy and assault and battery — and sentence him to eight years behind bars.

Incredibly, the conviction was based almost entirely on the testimony of Stewart’s accuser, a one-time mental patient who, with the backing of the German government, refused to allow her medical records to be entered as evidence.

When several witnesses came forward during a post-trial hearing to reveal startling proof that the accuser had lied several times during the trial, their words were largely ignored by the court and Stewart remained behind bars.

PLEASE READ at this link and learn more about Kelly A. Stewart. http://savethissoldier.com/mainpage.html
PLEASE READ at this link about more injustice this family is having to endure. http://savethissoldier.com/writehim.htm

Perhaps after reading you will find it in your heart to send a donation to help the Stewart family, no matter how small. All donations will be of great help.

We must bring attention to this travesty of Military Injustice! Notice I said Military, not U.S. Justice. Why? Because in a U.S. Court, Kelly Stewart would NEVER have spent a day in jail, and his case would have been dropped. Furthermore, Kelly could have sought justice and sued for damages for deformation of character in a U.S. Court against his accuser.

From Beverly Perlson of The Band Of Mothers:

I ask all of you to go to http://savethissoldier.com/mainpage.html and click on the left side of the page under “Latest Update.” Not only does this family have to live apart, not only is Kelly's wife getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan and the children will remain behind with their Aunt, BUT NOW USAA has decided to cancel all the accounts this struggling family has maintained! The President and CEO of this USAA organization is Josue Robles, a retired “Army” Major General! John Abizaid sits on the Board of Directors of USAA. Remember him? He is a former “Army” Middle East Commander!

Folks, if you will, please send an email to these two retired “Army” employees. Their email addresses are josue.robles@usaa.com
john.abisaid@usaa.com
It is disgusting that this “Army” allowed conviction of this Special Forces HERO without evidence and in spite of the dubious motive of the accuser! I find this criminal on the part of the “Army” but even destroying this Hero's life doesn't’ seem to be enough for them! Now they want to torment him further and make things as difficult as possible for him and his soon to be deployed wife!!!

The conviction of Special Forces First Sgt. Kelly Stewart is disgraceful and in my opinion, does a disservice to the Army and all who wear the uniform. I don't know how those involved in this conviction can look themselves or anywhere else in the eye. It is horrendous and shameful, what they have done to this Warrior's life and to his family.

Please read Kelly's story and email the webmaster, who is his highly decorated father! Please donate to this family and please send a scathing email to Josue Robles and John Abizaid. Please spread the word what USAA has done to this family. Frankly, they are not worthy to hold accounts of Heroes such as Kelly Stewart!

You all know, I have been heavily involved in trying to help Michael Behenna and the Leavenworth 10. I now add Kelly Stewart to the list! This is truly times that try men's souls but I am a Warrior too and I'm on the warpath! These men are all our Sons and this persecution of our Warriors has got to stop!

Please engage and help this family. Through 3 deployments, Kelly Stewart served to protect us and keep us safe. Now he needs our protection!

Thank You!

I’ve seen this happen here stateside, too. On a Navy ship stationed out of Norfolk circa 1992, there was an E-6 Fire Controlman who had sex with a woman that he met at a bar. She was married to another Navy guy and admitted that she wasn’t wearing her ring and didn’t tell the guy she was married. She went to on-base counseling because she felt guilty about the whole tryst and they pushed her into pursuing rape charges.

This poor dude was convicted and sentenced to 10 years. After her marriage fell apart and this guy had already done 18 months in prison, she admitted that she made the whole rape story up and the guy was freed. But he’d never get that year and a half of his life back. His career was completely trashed and his family was devastated. Wherever he goes, most people think of him as the rapist who got off on a technicality. I say Navy Family Services sucks.

Nonsense!

Didnt you read the article?

There was no evidence but the word of the accuser.

That means she could have accused a virgin and he still would have been convicted.

Thank you for posting this. Horrible. Of a piece with the multiple unncessary courts martial that have been convened against our troops for the past eight years.

One egregious example is that of Army Lt Behenna. Meanwhile, Marine Sgt Wuterich just learned that he will be court-martialed for something he has been fighting in the courts for years.

However, when one puts all this against the backdrop that murderers/maimers of our troops are currently being released from confinement in both Iraq and Afghanistan, it becomes more than simply an injustice.

I am not going to quit bringing attention to the terrible injustice that is happening to our military heroes through the military justice courts. When the accused soldier is not allowed to present witnesses or important information in their defense, injustice is occurring. This is happening much to often! Illinois Freeper Ping to post #2.

You said it right. Seems in the Military Justice System you are guilty and must prove your innocence. And by the way, you must do it without presenting witnesses or information which might reveal something about your accuser.

Yes, Kelly Stewart was found guilty based on an accusation with no actual evidence. Just the words of the accuser whose background information was not allowed to be heard in Kelly’s defense.

Since you do have an account with USAA, please go to the letter from Beverly Perlson at post #2. She provided in her letter the email address of two persons in control at USAA. A letter from you concerning your displeasure with their company over their treatment of Kelly Stewart would be exactly what they need to receive!

Sorry I do not have a suggestion for a replacement insurance company, but if I were you I certainly would shop around and end any service with USAA!

Welcome to the matriarchy, where men have to prove the sex was consensual and are guilty no matter what. If you don’t record every casual encounter that you have with your cell phone then you are risking the destruction of your life based on the word of some crazy b@#$@. It’s what feminism has brought us, deal with it as it’s the norm now and unless you have a ton of money, like the Duke Lacrosse players, or those cell phone vids your goose is cooked.

Well, the Duke students should not have been using a woman striipers services for anything at all. The vengeance of some women, when misused for sexual gratification, even sometimes in marriage, can be pretty bad. With those guys I know it was only visual, but if they had not stooped that low in the first place, it would not have opened them up to that. Don't play with darkness like that!

Kelly Stewart did admit to being intimate with the woman that one evening. So yes, one could say he was guilty of adultery.

I do not condone his action, but can certainly understand a soldier away from home having a weak moment and making a mistake.

My question is, do married folks go to jail for having a one night stand outside of marriage? No. And in Kelly Stewart's case, he was not allowed to defend himself against the false accusations the woman made four months after their consensual encounter.

As I wrote to Keith Brown for which he ridiculed me, when you use a woman in a wrong way, there often is hell to pay that comes through that woman...literal hell. So men need to learn to control their sexual desires! www.copingstrategiescd.com is a great way for free for our troopers to learn that...those that need it.

Seems someone had no “power of attorney” when attempting to access funds and other benefits in the USAA accounts. That is entirely appropriate and keeps scam artists at bay. Any compliants based on this are absolutely bogus! I am a longtime USAA member and would be very PO’d to find out that an imposter had dipped into our funds without authorization! You complainers and whiners can kiss my butt, because my assets in this co-op are NOT just sitting there for your pleasure and benefit!!

Yes, the media found the young men at Duke guilty before their trial. It was a long time coming, but the truth did finally come out that the woman's accusations were false.

You are so right about the fact that it takes money to defend oneself, especially when one is accused of being guilty even before a trial takes place.

I do hope that folks will read and learn about Kelly Stewart's case as it is a travesty of justice that is still going on. I also hope that many folks will consider sending at least a $10 donation to help Kelly and his family. http://savethissoldier.com/

I believe you missed what Kelly’s dad said. He was not trying to access funds in Kelly Stewart’s account. Kelly’s dad was questioning USAA about why they canceled Kelly’s coverage. The answer received from USAA was that Kelly did not meet their standards. Kelly’s father was questioning where their standards were stated, and what they were.

This sucks, BIG TIME.

Granted our Military is a microcosm of US Society as a whole and there are 'bad apples' in every branch. BUT. I would argue - not likely in the U.S. Army Special Forces. And not for an E7.

If he was the 'crazy monster' he's made out to be by the prosecutors he never would have made it into SF, or lasted, and surely unable hide his 'evilness' all those years going from E1 to E7. He never would have made it past E5, if that, and would have been separated long ago.

Sgt.1st Class Kelly A. Stewart got screwed for life.

Kelly Stewart did admit to being intimate with the woman that one evening. So yes, one could say he was guilty of adultery.

3rd party passive is no substitute for first person active contrition.

Would have been more convincing to start the story with: "Kelly Stewart did admit to..being.. guilty of adultery, and understands that one mistake like that has ruined many a man's life who isn't an elite soldier, who doesn't have lots of people eager to send them money for legal defense....many who end up without a friend in the world. People have lost treasure, lives and kingdoms for less.

My question is, do married folks go to jail for having a one night stand outside of marriage?

Good point.

Yes they will, if the tart claims rape. The Navy angle is a total red herring, and it does a disservice to the service to leverage his service as a mitigating factor.

What makes this Navy man so much better than any other man who cheats on his wife and ruins his career?

Cheat on you wife, risk losing everything in life.

Sorry. Unmarried 20 something serviceman gets duped by a whore bait-and-switch that's one thing. A married man who made it clear in front of witnesses that he was not up for a fling and is later accused of rape, defend the guy at all cost.

But "Moment of weakness" (aka 'it's only sex') for a man who has broken vows before God? No thanks.

I'm sick and tired of this "everybody lies about sex," "anyone can have a mortal moment" bullcrap.

NO. Not EVERYONE cheats on his wife.
