Former U.S. Army 1st Lt. Michael Behenna has won parole and will be released from Fort Leavenworth on March 14, his mother, Vicki Behenna, said Wednesday.
Behenna, who was convicted of unpremeditated murder in a combat zone, learned early Wednesday morning and called his parents in Edmond, where he will return next month. We go between tears and laughing, Vicki Behenna told The Oklahoman. Im just so thankful. Im just so very very thankful. Its wonderful.

Good that he has been granted Parole— I still say it WRONG to ever charge him to begin with.

Charging someone with “unpremeditated murder” in a combat zone. ROTFLMAO!!! Only in America! The land of “medical” marijuana and two men “marrying” each other! Whadda country!

Great news. This was a wrongful conviction. When we have an American president again, he needs to pardon him.
Spot on. Shakespeare was right.

Hi CT - I hope you are well.
I was remiss in not posting the website for the Behenna effort. It is http://www.defendmichael.com/
A person can read about the “journey” there. I had the pleasure of working with Vicki when she was in private practice. She is a quality lawyer that left to work for the US Attorney’s office. She is a career employee.
My Ranger Nephew (getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan again) has told me that Michael is legendary among Rangers.

Thanks, I’ve been on the defendmichael email list and it’s been really discouraging to see his legal team lose every appeal despite what seems to me to be a gross violation of the rules of legal procedure and evidence. I’m on Homer Simpson’s ping list for WWII 70 years ago by day and I’m sure glad we didn’t have a bunch of people trying to throw our boys in prison for doing their jobs back then.

It’s beyond wrong. Those that did should be cashiered from the the service.
