NEWSMAX: A military judge will give Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller little punishment Thursday after the Marine pleaded guilty to charges stemming from his criticism of Biden administration military leaders during the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, according to a Newsmax source.
The source said the judge was reviewing Scheller’s plea agreement and will rule that the maximum sentence will be a letter of reprimand, though the judge cannot actually issue the order.
“BREAKING: Lt. Col. #SCHELLER found guilty in court-martial. (No surprise — that was his plea) He will receive a discharge of AT LEAST ‘General Under Honorable Conditions,’ source told me. No jail time,” Washington Times reporter Mike Glenn tweeted.
Scheller called for military leaders to be held accountable after 13 U.S. service members were killed in an ISIS-K suicide bombing during the evacuation phase at Kabul’s airport.
In entering his plea of guilty to all charges and specifications, Scheller waived his right to a trial by jury and chose trial by military judge alone, Task & Purpose reported. The judge will determine if he will accept the plea.
Prosecutors charged Scheller with several offenses under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Scheller has been accused of showing contempt toward officials, showing disrespect toward superior commissioned officers, willfully disobeying a superior commissioned officer, dereliction in the performance of duties, failure to obey an order or regulation, and conduct unbecoming to an officer and a gentleman, according to Task & Purpose.
The 17-year Marine took to social media various times with calls for senior leaders to be held accountable, and he was reduced by his command to work in an office. After being given a gag order, Scheller violated that order and was sent to a military prison, for a week while he awaited a pretrial hearing for violating the gag order.
