Army Pfc. Lynndie England Convicted in Abu Ghraib Case

From MSNBC.com--Fort Hood, TX (AP): "Army Pfc. Lynndie England, whose smiling poses in photos of detainee abuse at Baghdad’s Abu Ghraib prison made her the face of the scandal, was convicted Monday by a military jury on six of seven counts.  England, 22, was found guilty of one count of conspiracy, four counts of maltreating detainees and one count of committing an indecent act. She was acquitted on a second conspiracy count.

The jury of five male Army officers took about two hours to reach its verdict. Her case now moves to the sentencing phase, which will heard by the same jury [and begins today]. She faces a maximum 10 years in prison." [Mark Godsey]
