Camp Humphreys soldier acquitted in beating case
SEOUL — A Camp Humphreys-based soldier was found not guilty Wednesday of charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.
Pfc. Marvin Calhoun, of the 520th Maintenance Company, was accused of being involved in an incident in the barracks in which a soldier was allegedly beaten into unconsciousness and dragged into the street outside of the barracks.
Calhoun was the second soldier found not guilty in connection with the incident.
On Tuesday, Pvt. Rolando Maitland, of the same company, was found not guilty of charges of conspiracy to obstruct justice, obstruction of justice and making a false official statement.
Prosecutors had accused him of helping carry the soldier’s body from the barracks to the street, and of phoning the military police and leading them to think that the injured soldier had attempted suicide.
Maitland was found guilty of punching a fellow soldier in an unrelated incident and was sentenced to 45 days hard labor without confinement.
