WüRZBURG, Germany — A Schweinfurt-based soldier has been sentenced to a year in prison for carrying on a sexual relationship with the 14-year-old daughter of another soldier, according to a case summary from the 1st Infantry Division’s Staff Judge Advocate’s office.

Pvt. Tyler Hall, 20, of the 1st Battalion, 18th Infantry Regiment, pleaded guilty to one count of carnal knowledge and one count of violating an order at a general court-martial Friday.

On April 2, Hall was pulled over by German police and found to be driving with a U.S. Army Europe driver’s license that had been revoked three months earlier because of a drunken-driving offense, the summary said.

Three weeks later, Hall began a monthlong relationship with the girl. He had sex with her about 10 times, said Capt. Zahid Quraishi, the military prosecutor, and warned her not to tell anyone because he would get into trouble.

Judge (Lt. Col.) Robin Hall sentenced him to 40 months in prison, total forfeiture of all pay and a dishonorable discharge. Under the terms of a pretrial agreement, the jail term was limited to 12 months.
