Military court throws out sentence for Navy SEAL convicted in the death of Green Beret

Recommended Posts

A military appeals court this week threw out the sentence for a Navy SEAL convicted last year of involuntary manslaughter and conspiracy charges in the 2017 death of a Green Beret who he choked during a drunken hazing incident in Mali.

The U.S. Navy-Marine Corps Court of Appeals vacated the January 2021 sentence for Chief Petty Officer Tony DeDolph of 10 years imprisonment, reduction in rank to E-1 and a dishonorable discharge for his role in the death of Army Special Forces Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar, according to a court opinion published Tuesday.
