1st ID soldier jailed for indecent acts with minorsWüRZBURG, Germany — A 1st Infantry Division soldier was convicted Jan. 3 during a special court-martial on charges that included indecent acts with a minor.

Spc. Roland J. Carlow, 25, of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, faced two specifications on the indecent acts charge, and also was convicted of making a false official statement, 1st ID spokesman Maj. William Coppernoll said this week.

Carlow’s sentence included a reduction to E-1, confinement for 11 months and a bad-conduct discharge. A pretrial agreement will limit the confinement to nine months, Coppernoll said.

The charges were in connection with two incidents in 2004, when Carlow kissed one underage female dependent and fondled another. The false statement was made during questioning by Criminal Investigation Command last year, Coppernoll said.
