Chaplain to face court on Sept. 19
Pacific edition, Thursday, September 13, 2007
The court-martial of the Camp Zama chaplain accused of adultery and Internet stalking has been rescheduled for Sept. 19-21, U.S. Army Japan officials said.
Last month, the military judge granted a delay after the defense requested more time to prepare.
Capt. Mike Myers, 45, is charged with five counts of cyberstalking and one specification each of adultery and unbecoming conduct stemming from his alleged relationship with an Arizona woman. He faced an Article 32 hearing in May, which is similar to a grand jury proceeding under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
A 16-year Army veteran, Myers remains assigned to Camp Zama’s 441st Military Intelligence Battalion, 500th Military Intelligence Brigade, but was removed from chaplain duties after receiving an Article 15 last November. Since then, he’s worked in an administrative role and had no contact with soldiers.
If convicted on all charges, he faces up to 27 years in prison, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and dismissal from the Army.
