There have been varying conclusions on the gossip channel about why no court-martial. Regardless, a recently unceremoniously JA has been removed from the promotion year group, an event he apparently didn't appreciate. The U.S.A. for the Western District of Virginia seems to have something to say on it.
An attorney and former Army Officer assigned to the United States Army Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School (JAG School) in Charlottesville, was arrested over the weekend in Arkansas and charged with cyberstalking.
U.S.A./DoJ presser here.
In the overnight hours between February 6 and 7, 2022, and while his Army discharge was pending, [he] attempted to delete, without authorization, online JAG training materials. [he] filmed himself doing so and narrated his motivations. In the video, [he] stated, “I’m gonna f*** you,” and “I’m going to bring their house down on them.” The same evening, [he] contacted Victim 1 and informed her that Russia reached out to him, wanted to know what he knew, and that he intended to travel to Russia. [His] cellphone records indicate he contacted the Russian embassy.
Obviously the internet could be wrong, but it looks like he may have been admitted to practice two years ago. In which case he was likely an OBC student. So policy reasons. But it also appears he was discharged only weeks after the alleged deletion so they may have lost jurisdiction before he was even a suspect.
Whether policy or lost jurisdiction is the reason why WDVA will prosecute, Madrigal is entitled to a unanimous verdict. He may fare better under the feds than the mil jus system...for now
And yesterday the trailer park expanded a litte.
