Special Ops soldier to face court-martial on child sex charges

Posted February 6, 2009

— A noncommissioned officer assigned to the U.S. Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg will face court-martial April 27 on child sex charges.

The court-martial, which is similar to a trial in civilian court, is scheduled for three days.

Sgt. 1st Class Andrew Aguirre, an information systems operator assigned to the command, was arraigned earlier this week on one count of attempted sodomy with a child under the age of 12, three counts of indecent acts with a child under age 16, one count of rape of a child and one count of aggravated sexual abuse of a child.

Walter Sokalski Jr., deputy public affairs officer with the ASOC, said the alleged actions occurred between 2004 and 2007.

    I say hand him over to his unit or to units of his peers and let them handle him. no jail time....let them handle it. what a disgrace to our soliders.. god bless our soliders. I think anybody who harms a child needs to be just took out. there are to many adults that would be willing to take care of his/her perverted needs.
