Europe briefs: Soldier convicted in child porn case

By STARS AND STRIPES Published: January 2, 2005

Update: On Feb. 16, 2007, the U.S. Army Court of Criminal Appeals set aside the conviction in this case and remanded the case back to the convening authority for a rehearing or dismissal of charges. On April 6, 2007, the Department of the Army officially dismissed the charges in this case.

A U.S. soldier in Kosovo was convicted of possession of child pornography during a general court-martial on Dec. 14, Army officials reported last week.

Spc. Anthony C. Haddock of Troop T, 4th Squadron, 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment, serving at Camp Bondsteel, originally was charged with distribution of child pornography, as well, but the charges were reduced as part of his plea agreement, an Army spokesman said.

Haddock was sentenced to a reduction of rank to E-1, 16 months of confinement and a bad conduct discharge.
