Appeals court dismisses one charge against Navy officer who lived with prostitutes in Bahrain


Recommended Posts

A Navy officer who housed Thai prostitutes in his government quarters in Bahrain, even after the military warned him he was under investigation, has had part of his conviction thrown out on appeal.

The U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals this month set aside one of two charges of conduct unbecoming an officer that Lt. Cmdr. Joseph Nelson was convicted of in 2019, saying the prosecution had not provided enough evidence to support it.
