US Army general facing sex charges back in court

Posted: Updated:
FORT BRAGG, N.C. -

A U.S. Army general facing sexual assault charges is due back in court for a hearing on pre-trial motions.
    
Tuesday's hearing precedes a court martial for Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair now set to begin July 16 on charges that include forcible sodomy, indecent acts, violating orders and adultery.
    
A military judge last month ordered two U.S. Army generals to testify about whether they were pressured by top Pentagon officials to charge Sinclair with the alleged sexual assault of a female aide.
    
Military judge Col. James Pohl granted a pre-trial motion by Sinclair's defense team compelling testimony by Gen. Dan Allyn and Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Colt, the current and former commanders at Fort Bragg.
    
Base officials said they could not comment on whether Allyn and Colt are expected to testify.
