    The alledged crimes happened off base, it's a civilian matter. If he is found guilty by a civilian court, the military will then exact their own punishment aginst him. Dishonorable discharge from the US Army.

    It shames me to belong to a society who values the lives of children so little. It tells me that ones high in the system either participate in or at the very least condone this behavior. Consolation lies in knowing these criminals will meet their true judgement when they leave this earth.

    Noteworthy is the LACK of a Fort Bragg Response. The lack of information is also noteworthy. Was this a Sheriff's Press Release? Charged with "sex crimes against a child" is nonspecific. "Also charged with statutory rape, sex offense, indecent liberties with a child, disseminating obscene material and first-degree sex offense involving a child." No ages listed; non specific charges. Two days ago Anthony Anderson charged with sexually moleting a 3 year old child - BOND = $170,000. Bond for Jason Law's multiple charges = $250,000. Are there any set standards for deciding BOND for child sex offenses? Where is the North Carolina Attorney General Roy T. Cooper? Updating his resume for another job? Someone needs to be in charge of the NC DOJ and work at reducing these types of offenses and fair and balanced prosecution of the accused.

    Is this another reaction to serving overseas? Seems to be the norm here lately. I feel for the family of the victim and the victim themself.

    What is wrong with people, and why is so much of this coming from our soliders on Ft Bragg. This is one of the worst military posts I have seen in my 10 yrs being a military spouse. Disgusting
