In a split 3-2 vote, the military’s appellate court yesterday threw out the rape conviction and prison sentence of a Navy SEAL, contending that top legal officers worried about the service’s reputation for handling alleged sexual assault cases had tainted the case.

In a 43-page brief reversing the lower courts’ decisions, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces dismissed the case “with prejudice,” so the government cannot renew the same charges against Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Keith E. Barry. https://news.usni.org/2018/09/06/top-appeals-court-upends-navy-seal-conviction-citing-unlawful-command-influence-senior-jag
